I don’t know what rock I’ve been living under but I only just learned about Duotrope. It’s a “free* resource for writers that primarily offers an extensive, searchable database of current fiction and poetry markets.” (So, yes, a little like the Poets & Writers database.) If you’re interested in submitting your writing to literary journals and magazines, it’s worth checking out. You can create an account to track your submissions, as well as view average acceptance stats (although beware that the stats are skewed thanks to voluntary responses.) It’s also a handy way of bookmarking journals you’re interested in who aren’t currently accepting submissions and tracking contest deadlines.

So, take these words to heart and, with Duotrope’s help, join the game!

* For now, at least. A donations tab alerts you that they’re struggling to make ends meet.
