This week’s featured market is Split Lip magazine.
Split Lip is an online journal driven to help literature mingle with pop culture and to allow art to serve as an alternative means to mainstream journalism, which is filtered and reveals only surface-level truth. Split Lip is a punk rock publishing collective, and we are unfiltered, unrefined, extra virgin––shake well before drinking. Split lip believe art serves a higher purpose than to depict beauty or provoke an emotion; it can inform, instruct, challenge and even heal if one allows it to.
This week we turn our focus to a lively new literary magazine: The Indianola Review. Their first issue is coming on December 15th. We really like the look of this smart new market. They offer highly competitive pay for successful submissions – that’s right, pay. They also condemn literary snobs and they are already running a $1,000 dollar flash fiction prize! What more could we ask for?
Word Riot first opened up shop in March 2002 and has become one of the best known and most reputable online journals on the interwebs.
According to their submissions page, Word Riot like edgy, experimental writing. They also like publishing the best up-and-coming writers and poets.
In terms of short fiction, Word Riot only ask that submissions should be no less than 1000 words and no greater than 6500. They also request that you don’t explain/tell them about the piece in your cover letter.
Word Riot are also accepting novel extracts, creative non-fiction, poetry, interviews and essays as well as flash fiction. You can see their submissions manager here.
