Markets listed on this page are periodical markets that pay a minimum of ¼¢/word to just under 1¢/word (based on the mean average between the shortest and the longest accepted word counts, for example a word count limit of <10k equals a mean word count of 5k). Content may not include significant amounts of material written by the publisher(s), editor(s), or staff of the market. Payment may be in the form of a print copy, an approved gift, or a fully shared royalty (100% of profits shared equally between publisher, editor(s), & authors) the value of which equals or exceeds ¼¢/word.

Read the complete guidelines carefully before submitting. If in doubt contact the editor. Try to read at least one issue to get a feel for what is wanted. US ($), UK (£), or EU (€) currency are used unless otherwise noted. Addresses are US unless noted otherwise.
