Chicken Soup for the Soul: Calls for Submissions, Various Deadlines
Currently there are SIX anthologies that need your stories. A couple of them are recently posted, too. It's always a good idea to check their website often.
These are just a few that I happened upon. I'm only familiar with Chicken Soup, but the other ones do look legit. And don't forget....you can't get published or win anything, if you don't at least TRY! Enter. Submit. You never know! Good Luck!
