These magazines publish fiction, nonfiction, and poetry, and they’re a mix of literary and genre markets. Not all of them are open through the month, so you have to send those works out as soon as you can.

This is an online horror magazine and podcast from Escape Artists. They are scheduled to read submissions for 10 days in August. They have extensive guidelines, including, “We’re looking for horror: dark, weird fiction. We run the spectrum from grim realism or crime drama, to magic-realism, to blatantly supernatural dark fantasy. We publish highly literary stories reminiscent of Poe or Lovecraft as well as vulgar shock-value pulp fiction. … Originality demands that you’re better off avoiding vampires, zombies, and other recognizable horror tropes unless you have put a very unique spin on them. What matters most is that the stories are dark and compelling.” They also accept reprints.
Reading period: 12-21 August 2022 (see schedule; and open for Anthologies and Collections from 2022 reprints till 5 August, see their Moksha submission system)
Length: Up to 6,000 words
Pay: $0.08/word

Pay: $0.05/word
