Subtropics Pays Writers A Thousand Dollars

Subtropics Guidelines:

Subtropics seeks to publish the best literary fiction, essays, and poetry being written today, both by established and emerging authors. We will consider works of fiction of any length, from short shorts to novellas (up to 15,000 words) and self-contained novel excerpts. We give the same latitude to essays. We appreciate work in translation and, from time to time, republish important and compelling stories, essays, and poems that have lapsed out of print.

We do not consider work that has been published in any other print or electronic journal. Submissions are read from September 15th to November 15th and from January 15th to March 15th.

Please note: Simultaneous submissions in poetry are not accepted, although we do accept them in other genres.

We are now accepting electronic submissions only, via Submittable®. Click the link below to submit your work.  When you purchase a subscription or single issue and are prompted to submit, you are in fact being asked to submit your payment, not a work that you wish us to consider for publication. Submit one story, one essay, or up to four poems in one document. Accepted file formats are .doc, .docx, and .pdf. Please include your contact information, including your email address, on the document. We respond exclusively by e-mail.

° Please read an issue of the magazine before you send us your work in order to get a feel for the kind of writing we publish. You’ll see that we don’t publish science fiction, fantasy, other genre fiction, or anything with talking animals.
° We ask that you submit only one story at a time, and wait until you have heard from us before sending more. Once you have received a reply from us, please wait at least one month before sending another submission.
° Please send no more than four poems in any one batch.
° We try to respond as quickly as possible to submissions, and for this reason are not able to write personal replies.
° A preponderance of the stories coming our way are written in first-person present tense; we are starting to grow weary of this perspective. Please keep this in mind.
° We are skeptical of the second person, though willing to be persuaded.
° More thoughts to come as they occur to us.

For stories and essays, Subtropics pays a flat fee of $1,000 ($500 for a short short) for North American first serial rights. Poets are paid $100 per poem. Subtropics pays upon acceptance for prose; for poetry, we pay after the publication of the issue preceding the one in which the author’s work will appear.

You know, I noticed that writing texts on the economic theme is very difficult, because you need to use a lot of analysts, not to spend a lot of time I usually use this service so that they have helped me in collecting all the information.

  2. My sister is a very good poet cuz,she visited a literary club in childhood. But I have a mathematical mind. So it was very difficult to study literature. While I didn`t find on the Internet this website Now I order my essays only on this site.
