Call for Submissions

Calls for Submissions: Get paid for your writing and approaching deadlines

These journals pay their contributing writers!

moneyAs always, read submission guidelines CAREFULLY. Don’t get rejected for not following the rules. Read as many reading samples or past issues you can for each of the journals you’re submitting to, in order to make sure you are sending your best work which fits their theme and/or is similar to the work they have already published.
