Thanks so much! I was very careful to select online journals that either had very low or no submission fees. Quite a few had a month where they waived their fees and I would submit to them as well. A few that I felt were really worth it I paid the submission fee, but I gave myself a cap of $25. The list of who I sent to is LOOOOOOONG. The journal that is publishing my story is a new one called Curating Alexandria ( I actually wrote about it here on Medium. I still have a stack of stories being considered on Submittable as well. Hopefully, this will be the first of many to be published.
