Welcome to this month’s list of writing markets. As always, a gentle reminder: I’m sharing these markets, not endorsing them. Please read the complete guidelines and always do your homework before submitting your work to any market.
Flash fictioneers looking for a paying market can find one at Flash Fiction Online. Keep submissions between 500 and 1,000 words and be sure to browse the site to get a feel for the type of stories they publish.
GirlsGetaway.Com seeks to represent travel from a female perspective. Think: Girlfriend getaways. This website pays $20 (paypal) for articles of 500-1,500 words.
As niche trade magazines go, Emmy Magazine has strict requirements for their writers. They cater to members of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
You’ll need to have some clips under your belt before you approach Woman’s Day (scroll down for guidelines). They do not accept unsolicited manuscripts, but will look at queries with recent clips.
Adams Media is a book publisher known for such popular series as “Cup of Comfort” and “The Everything” series. They welcome book proposals from authors and agents alike. They also post periodic calls for submissions on their submissions page.
Teen and preteen writers take note:
“Youth Imagination encourages and fosters creative writing, and especially writing by teens and preteens, by including guided writing exercises, discussion and workshops on our website. Then, after the stories are developed, written, workshopped and polished, there’s always the questions, what’s next? We have the “what’s next,” too- a magazine that focuses on the creative writing for and by teens.”
