Welcome to The Grinder!

The grinder is a submission tracker and market database for writers of fiction (non-fiction and poetry coming soon!). Use our extensive and powerful search engine to find a home for your work. With new features being added periodically we hope to provide a permanent and stable home for your submission tracking.

We believe the value of our product lies in its availability and as such The Grinder is and always will be free to all users for all features.

If you have a feature suggestion or see a problem, please use the [Contact Us] link in the menu bar.
We love your feedback!
