Do you struggle to find paying opportunities to get published?

Writing is no cakewalk, and getting published is even harder. Even worse, just when you find a publishing opportunity, you’ll discover that they don’t pay your writers. Searching and searching for those select few submission calls that do pay their writers takes up valuable time–time that you could be spending writing.


That’s why we’ve collected 3 upcoming publishing opportunities for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry in literary magazines that pay their writers.

Here’s a pro-tip on how to ensure your work gets selected: talk to a professional who understands what literary journals, writing contests, and publishers look for in submissions. I can work with you on your first 5 pages. You will receive tailored feedback and feel 100% ready to publish. Drop yourself into my calendar here. Spaces are limited.
