Length: Up to 6,000 words
Pay: $0.06/word

Virginia Quarterly Review
This premier literary magazine is open for submissions during July. They publish award-winning as well as emerging writers. They publish poetry, literary fiction, and nonfiction.

Romance, Mystery, Crime and the Gothic are all acceptable. Speculative elements strongly encouraged. Their fist issue will be out in October.
