Up For Discussion: Simultaneous fiction submissions okay?

contestsandgrants_sidebar_144x180.jpg A new feature bringing you highlights from the mediabistro.com discussion boards. This week:
pentup: “I know that, in general, it’s not good to submit a pitch for the same article to multiple outlets, but what about short stories? I’ve finally written one that I’m proud of and thought I’d sent it out. But it seems like all the places that publish fiction take months to get back to you.”
catlondon: “Unless the publication says “No simultaneous submissions” send it everywhere you want. If it does get accepted, just make sure you alert everyone else you are withdrawing it from consideration.”
