Tired of digging to find publishing opportunities?

Writing and publishing is hard enough. Finding publishing opportunities that actually pay their writers can seem impossible. Worse still, many publications charge their writers a fee just to submit their work, meaning that trying to get published can mean you lose money.

That’s why we’ve collected a list of upcoming publishing opportunities with no submission fee and high pay. 

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.


If these aren’t your thing, no worries. We put out a curated list of the latest publishing opportunities each week. Be sure to check back here in 7 days for 3 more opportunities! Or, you can get on our mailing list to have this list delivered straight to your inbox. Never miss a publishing opportunity again. Click below to sign up.
