Okay, so maybe it's Monday morning where you are. At any rate, this week's recommended market is Pilcrow & Dagger. They are another new-ish journal that Steve and I found last year when they hit us up on Meetup to announce their launch. Each of their 8 issues has a theme. Here's info on their next two themes from their website:

April’s theme is Hometown Stories/Open Call. Do you live in a small town? Are you dying to escape? Did you move to a small town from a large city? Is the quiet environment driving you crazy? If you have any experience with town gossips, goofy sheriffs, strange fundraisers or enjoy watching tourists stumbling around your town, please send us your stories. If you don’t have any experience with any of the above, don’t worry about it. After all, you’re fiction writers; make something up. The submission window for April closes March 1, 2015.

The May/June issue is featuring a theme of Summer Vacations or Travel Stories. If you have never taken a vacation or traveled anywhere or never dreamed of traveling, then feel free to submit anything you have on hand. The submission window for the May/June issue closes on April 15, 2015. You’ve got plenty of time to take that trip and write your essay!
