Do you have those fiction magazine submissions ready? There are some great literary magazines accepting submissions in May, and you have more than a week to get your stories ready for publication.
This is one of many literary magazines accepting submissions from fiction writers in May. They’re looking for fiction and other creative writing for a special issue following this theme: “A World of Flavors – Writers on Food and Drink.” This is one of the more prestigious literary journals that will give you an impressive byline but not much monetary compensation.
This fiction magazine accepts submissions year-round, and they publish three issues each year. While the payment isn’t openly disclosed, they do offer competitive rates. This is one of the few print magazines that are still dedicated entirely to fiction, so it’s worth subscribing and getting a good sense of what they look for in a short story.
The Sun magazine submissions are accepted at any time, so you’re not limited to May. This is a market for serious fiction that can pay up to $2,000 per story, so send only your best work. Keep in mind that this market discourages simultaneous submissions and is interested in stories no longer than 7,000 words in length.
This is one of the few literary magazines accepting submissions in May, and it will only last until May 31. If you don’t submit this month, you will have to wait until August when the last reading period of the year opens. In addition to a great byline or clip, published authors will receive $40 through PayPal or in an Amazon gift card.
This is another literary magazine with an open reading period that runs a bit later than expected for the industry. May is the final month for fiction submissions, and they look for short stories between 2,500 and 8,500 words. The maximum payment is $200 per story, plus you get a quality publication that will make other fiction writers jealous.
