The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

PULP Literature - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
This publication may frequently close when they reach a submission quota--these changes are not tracked in this listing.
Note: the pay rate on this listing is based on converting their estimated pay rate from Canadian cents to US cents, although it's not immediately obvious it's a Canadian company that is the case

We take all genres, not just pulp. Because our title says “Pulp” Literature, some authors assume we want guns and blood. The “pulp” in our title refers to cheap pulp paper, which we someday hope to use. We want our magazine to include a balance of all genres, including fantasy, romance, mystery, literary, etc.


This market is temporarily closed.
