FictionMarket started as an idea for a better way to search for fiction publications. Often while researching submissions, you find what editors post what they would like on their submissions page, or you find details in another fiction market service, but neither of those seem to provide genres and lengths that match with what the publication is actually publishing. The goal of Fiction Market is to provide accurate details about what a particular publication is actually publishing, not what they say they are publishing.

Using submission data input by actual authors and reviews of already published works, FictionMarket aims to match authors and publications based on story content and style.
