There are dozens of publications geared toward writers. Almost all publications have a digital presence and some still produce physical magazines and newsletters. The admins are providing this list as a service to writers but not as an endorsement of any group or organization. Some of the publications require a subscription or membership in the sponsoring organization. Nearly all online writing groups have links to articles and information useful to writers of all levels.

Magazines for Writers
Many magazines offer great discounts for new
subscriptions and include online access to additional
resources. Check out their online sites before spending
money for a print publication to see if it's a good fit.
