Pick a magazine you like, a publication that you would like to appear in. If you receive favorable comments and an acceptance, continue submitting other work to them. Once you print with a magazine you are referred to as a known quantity with them. Once accepted it is much easier to break back into their pages. Multiple sales with the same publication can be considered a "House" writer. Any work your House pub rejects you can send off to other magazines. It is advantageous to establish a small career with one entity first. Publishers can be possessive of a writer if they feel they have discovered a new talent that's just right for THEM.
