  1. ha! No, not a librarian but I appreciate them. I have an account with Submittable. (https://www.submittable.com/) It is probably the most popular submission software for all manner of literary and scientific and otherwise journals and magazines. They send out a monthly newsletter with a smattering of articles from around the internet as well as a selection of current calls for submission calls culled from the journals that use their service. I always browse both to see what’s up.
