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 in rare cases 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.

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 currency and addresses are used unless otherwise noted.

All Token paying market listings are listed as a courtesy and therefore subject to instant removal if they do not inform me of any change in their guidelines that affects the listing at Ralan.com. Any change, no exceptions. No re-listing will be possible.

These listings are provided in good faith with the belief the info is correct, but Ralan.com accepts no responsibility for any errors or omissions in them. The fact that an entry is listed here is no guarantee that said entity will ever publish anything. Contact with any editor or publisher is at the contributor's own risk. Ralan.com encourages all potential contributors to do a web search of the editor's and/or publisher's name before submitting to them. Each visitor assumes all risk associated with the use or misuse of the information here.
