5 Paying Literary Markets to Submit to in February 2022

These magazines are currently open for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. All of them pay for the writing they publish.

The Antihumanist
This magazine publishes anti-human work. “We want fiction that challenges human centred narratives, that forces us to confront our place in the universe, that makes us question: Who are we? Why are we here? Is there a purpose? Historically, weird fiction has best captured this goal. However, we are willing to accept submissions from speculative, horror, and literary writers that meet the above criteria.” They also publish translations, nonfiction, letters, and art on the anti-human theme.
Deadline: 1 March 2022
Length: Up to 1,000 words for fiction, 750-1,500 words for essays, up to 350 words for letters
Pay: $0.05/word
