Last Changed: Monday, 1 August 2022                 17 Market Listings

Markets listed on this page are periodical markets that pay a minimum of US ¼¢/word to just under US 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 can be reasonably expected to equal or exceed ¼¢/word.
