I have a degree in creative writing from a top university,but still have no significant credits yet. How should I go about gettingpublished in a reputable magazine or web site for the first time? Isself-publishing the way to go? I have short stories that are done, but I am notsure where to send them. I know I need an agent, but trying to get one withoutever being published just isn't going to happen. Any suggestions?.
