How are you all making out? I would love to hear what you worked on this month. On the last day of this series, I’ll show a tally of what I finished.

Mslexia Magazine

Today’s submission opportunity is for an online magazine, Mslexia.

This magazine includes interviews, news, reviews, grants, and competitions. It’s read by beginners and top authors. It’s an amazing magazine for women who write. They aim to promote established and new voices.

They ask for theme prose and poetry twice a year. Winners are selected by guest editors and are sent a small payment.

December 17th

SPIDER is a literary magazine for children. It features engaging and fresh poems, lit, and stories for newly independent readers. Editors are looking for beautifully written and energetic pieces with a strong kid appeal.
High-interest elements like suspense, adventure, and humor are popular. The age group is 6-9 years old.

Enchanted Forest

Due: April 1, 2019

They’re looking for stories, poems, activities, or short plays for this theme. They’re looking for worlds of wonder and magic, full of mythical beasts, witches in the woods, and fairytale castles.

They’re looking for a new version of the traditional cast found in a fairytale. What if the villain, princess, knight, or prince, don’t want to accept their roles given to them?

Fun, right?!

I can’t wait to work on this story.

The Manuscript Review Process

Once the submission window closes, the pieces are reviewed by first readers. They consider the literary potential and see if it’s a good fit for their magazine.

Submissions that are promising are reviewed by editors and the magazine editor. The magazine editor makes the final decision. Sometimes, the editor writes an author and requests revisions.

Rates

These rates are amazing. Stories and articles pay up to a nice 25¢ per word. Poems pay up to $3.00 per line; $25.00 minimum. Activities, games, and recipes pay up to $75.00 flat rate.

Have Fun Submitting

I think this submission opportunity will be fun. Who doesn’t love enchanted forests?!
