Market Listing February 24th
Posted by Dianna Gunn
Today’s markets all offer token payment–averaging about $10/per story, varying from magazine to magazine, these payments certainly will never pay the bills but they are nice. They let you know that somebody really appreciates what you’re doing. Always aim for the higher paying markets first, but don’t be afraid to send your stories to these places once they’ve been rejected elsewhere. After all, it’s better to get paid a little bit for your work than nothing at all, right?
Tales of the Talisman This magazine pays $10 per story and they accept science fiction, fantasy and horror of up to 6000 words.
Witches and Pagans Publishes stories with neo-Pagan elements and protagonists only. I’m not sure the length of stories they accept because it isn’t too clear, but they pay $0.025/words. (For those of you who hate numbers as much as I do, that’s two and a half cents per word.) Read the guidelines thoroughly first and query if you think your story’s too long or too short for them.
Nine: A Journal of Imaginative Fiction This is an ezine with a cool concept: writers are paid 9% of the royalties for the issue which their work is published in, with a minimum payout of $40. They accept stories of up to 10, 000 words.
As always, don’t forget to read the guidelines thoroughly and follow instructions. By putting your best foot forward and showing that you’re going out of your way to give them what you want, you give the editors a better impression right away.
Good luck on your adventure towards publication!
