Duotrope? Use It or Lose it?

Duotrope.  Have you heard of it?  Do you use it?  I’ve heard of it here and there but have had no experience with it. 

From my understanding, they offer a Submission Tracker as well as listings of publishers.  Their site says “We help you save time finding publishers or agents for your work, so you can focus on creating. Our market listings are up to date and full of information you won’t find elsewhere. We also offer submission trackers, custom searches, deadline calendars, statistical reports, and extensive interviews.” 

Duotrope’s fees are inexpensive enough, $5.00 per month or $50.00 per year.  I do feel that we writers get nickeled & dimed to death by everything that costs us though.   

So give me your honest feedback.  Is Duotrope worth it?  Have you had any success with them?  Or is this just another money drain?  

I appreciate your input! 

Thanks! Penny ❤

  1. Highly recommend. I was going to write a ton about it here, but i recommend you try it out for a month & you’ll convince yourself of its value. Without Duotrope, most submissions are just a shot in the dark. Duotrope helps you fine tune your submission targets
    (I’ve told myself not to hype Duotrope to other writers because it will only increase the competition, but…)
    Trust me; I’m very serious about my writing and submissions & Duotrope has been invaluable to me in submission successes.
    Most of what you’ll see here ( http://eggsovertokyo.blogspot.com/ ) happened because I’m a Duotrope user.
