1 AGNI

AGNI publishes poetry, short fiction, and essays. The print magazine appears twice yearly, in spring and fall. The website grows biweekly with postings of new online-only fiction, poetry, essays, reviews, and interviews.

Payment is $20 per page for prose and $40 per page for poetry, with a $300 maximum.  Read More.

2 Barrelhouse

Barrelhouse is currently open for comics, book reviews and Ask Someone Awesome.

I found their payment system rather different: 🙂

We pay $50 to each contributor to our print issues, as well as two contributor copies. So far, online contributors are paid primarily in karma. All contributors are also promised free beer, if we ever run into you in the flesh. If you don’t believe us about the free beer, ask around a little bit. We are frequently tipsy and imprudently generous. Read More.

3 Boulevard Magazine

Boulevard strives to publish only the finest in fiction, poetry, and non-fiction. While we frequently publish writers with previous credits, we are very interested in less experienced or unpublished writers with exceptional promise. If you have practiced your craft and your work is the best it can be, send it to Boulevard.

Submission Fee: $3 online, Free by post.

Submissions accepted from October 1st to May 1st.

Payment:

  • Prose minimum is $100, maximum is $300
  • Poetry minimum is $25, maximum is $250

6 The Antioch Review

Our audience is made up of educated citizens, often professional people, who are interested in matters beyond their fields of special activity.  With few exceptions, our subjects cover most of the range of social science and humanities.  Our approach tries to steer a middle course between scholars speaking exclusively to other scholars in their field, and workaday journalists appealing to a broad popular audience; both these approaches have their own journals and audiences.

We try for the interpretive essay on a topic of current importance, drawing on scholarly materials for its substance and appealing to the intellectual and social concerns of our readers.  We are also interested in reviving the moribund art of literary journalism.

Payment is upon printed publication at the rate of $20.00 per printed page (about 425 words) plus 2 copies of the issue.  Authors may buy additional copies at an authors’ discount off the cover price. Read More.

7 The Atlantic

The Atlantic is always interested in great nonfiction, fiction, and poetry. A general familiarity with what we have published in the past is the best guide to what we’re looking for. All manuscripts should be submitted as a Word document or PDF. Succinct pitches may be submitted in the body of an e-mail. Pitches include:

  1. Nonfiction
  2. Fiction
  3. Poetry
  4. Books

9 The First Line

In the six years I spent tracking David Addley, it never occurred to me that he didn’t exist.
