13 Great places to submit your stories!

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 While we frequently publish writers with previous credits, we are very interested in less experienced or unpublished writers with exceptional promise.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

4 Crazyhorse

Crazyhorse welcomes general submissions of fiction, nonfiction, and poetry from September 1st through May 31st, with the exception of the month of January, during which we only accept entries for the Crazyhorse Prizes.

We ask that submissions of fiction and nonfiction be somewhere between 2,500 and 8,500 words in length. Exceptional work that falls outside this range has found a home in Crazyhorse in the past, but it is an unusual occurrence. For poetry, please submit a set of 3-5 poems.

Payment for accepted work: $20 per page of layout with a maximum $200 payment.

Read More. 

5 One Story

One Story is seeking literary fiction. Because of our format, we can only accept stories between 3,000 and 8,000 words. They can be any style and on any subject as long as they are good.

Payment:

$500 and 25 contributors copies for First Serial North American rights. All rights will revert to the author following publication. Read More.

Penguin Random House (South Africa)

Penguin Random House South Africa comprises the imprints Penguin Books South Africa, Struik Kinders, Struik Lifestyle, Struik Nature, Struik Travel & Heritage, Umuzi and Zebra Press.

Penguin Random House South Africa will consider submissions in the following categories:

  1. General and literary fiction
  2. Narrative non-fiction (politics, current affairs, history, military history, sport, true crime, biographies/autobiographies, health and well-being, humour, business and personal finance
  3. Illustrated non-fiction – nature guides and general books pertaining to nature and environment; children’s nature; travel and heritage; cookery, health, gardening, etc.)
  4. Children’s books

If a decision is made to publish a manuscript, Penguin Books South Africa will make you an offer based on what we believe to be the sales potential of the book in our market. If the offer is accepted, a publishing contract (containing details of royalty payments and the rights and obligations of both parties) will be drawn up. Penguin Books South Africa will then put the manuscript into production. Read More.

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

Read More.

8 The Cincinnati Review.

The Cincinnati Review welcomes submissions from writers, irrespective of which point they may be in their writing career. They accept online submissions.

Consideration is given to stories, poems and nonfiction for the Robert and Adele Schiff Awards in Poetry and Prose.

Payment:

  • $25 per page of prose
  • $30 per page of poetry.

Read More

9 The First Line

This is such a funky quarterly! As their name implies, they provide the first line of a story and you complete it (300 to 5000 words) or a critical essay (500 to 800 words).

Winter is due on November, 1 2016 and the first line is:

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

Payment is made on publication:

  • $25.00 – $50.00 for fiction,
  • $5.00 – $10.00 for poetry, and
  • $25.00 for nonfiction.

We also send you a copy of the issue in which your piece appears. You’ll receive your money and issue at the same time. Read More.

10 The Georgia Review

Published quarterly by The University of Georgia since 1947, The Georgia Review features an eclectic blend of essays, fiction, poetry, graphics, and book reviews. Appealing across disciplinary lines, the Review draws its material from a wide range of cultural interests—including, but not limited to, literature, history, philosophy, anthropology, politics, film, music, and the visual arts.

Payment:

  • $50 per printed page for prose and
  • $4 per line for poetry.

Read More.
