This is definitely a well-kept secret as there seems to be no link up on the Deepening web site from which you can access The Deepening Blog Sphere. I strongly suggest this is done forthwith, as authors and others always find the possibility of communicating with editors, agents and publishers through comments a welcome experience.
I mention this to the readers of Cobwebs Of The Mind for a few reasons. The first is that some of the entries there, especially Great Authors vs. Bad Actors should really be read by all. Yet again another posting by a publisher that reminds one of the Rejecter's comment here, which precipitated my posting: A Very Valid Response From The Rejecter. This validates (though it did not need validating that such practices by frustrated idiots are not as uncommon as we would like to think.
I also think that if you want to add to your staple of possible publishing sites, The Deepening, is a legitimate way to go as well. If you are trying to break in with short stories and need a good place in a really small "arena" of legitimate places to submit your short story, try TD. Take a look at the blog, The Deepening Blog, and web site, The Deepening, to see if you it matches your needs.
Yes, I have a soft spot for TD as they have published some of my stories. However, it is a legitimate site with fairly good editorial feedback as well. Of course if your eyes are only on The New Yorker and Atlantic Monthly, then as I always say, go for it. Unfortunately we cannot all get published in such prestigious magazines, and though it is great to strive for, TD will give you an open venue and readers (if they accept your short that is!)
So along with those SASE's packed and shipped to The New Yorker, Harper's, Atlantic Monthly and Paris Review - if you want to get a short story out there, TD is well worth the effort at looking at and making the attempt.
