For the month of April, all of my "A to Z" posts are directly related to my writing: the markets where I submit my work, in particular.
Got bugs? Today, we've got The Journal of Unlikely Entomology under the magnifying glass. Here's what they're currently looking for:
"Beautifully-written fiction, characters that grab us by the throats and refuse to let go until their stories have been told, worlds that draw us in and demand to be explored…and bugs. Genre isn’t particularly important to us—speculative, mainstream, slipstream, and the unclassifiable tales in between—we’ll read anything; all we ask is that something pertaining to bugs is integral or significant in your story. The bug element can be literal or metaphorical, hallucinatory or behavioral or metaphysical, or any combination thereof."
Pro: a paying market (1 cent per word, up to $50), reprints are accepted, electronic submissions
Con: none known at this time; they're building their first issue
I haven’t submitted anything to them yet, but I have a reprint, "Scuttle", I've been shopping around and think this market could be a perfect fit.
Thanks for visiting; enjoy the next "J" stop on your A to Z tour!
