It seems there are some posters who have an interest in reading and writing literature in its various forms; are you aware the chans have their own eZine? It's not exactly prestigious, but it does mean they'll consider most any submissions for publication. So you have an opportunity too!
There is a $40.00 prize for the best prose fiction each month, if it helps. This months one I thought was especially deserving, knowing the author had a death and a heart attack in the family the month prior to writing it, so it was quite a touching story.
Their url is http://theaprilreader.org/, read a few back-issues if you can. It's a pain to get your mind into "reading internet fiction" mode but it's really worth it.
