Eight markets for short stories, poetry, essays and other prose that pay $150 – $2,000

One Teen Story: "One Teen Story is looking for great short stories written for the young adult audience ages 13 and up. These stories should deal with the teen experience (issues of identity, friendship, family, coming-of-age, etc.) and should be geared primarily toward an audience of teen readers. With that in mind, gratuitous profanity, sex and drug use are best avoided. We’re open to all genres of literary fiction between 2,000 and 4,500 words."
Payment: $500

One Story seeks literary short stories. "They can be any style and on any subject as long as they are good. We are looking for stories that leave readers feeling satisfied and are strong enough to stand alone." Single stories are sent to email subscribers every month.
Length: Between 3,000 and 8,000 words.
Payment: $500 and 25 contributors copies.

Poets & Writers Magazine: "Poets & Writers Magazine reaches a national audience of 100,000 readers from emerging to established literary writers.

Because we have readers all over the country, it’s important that stories have national significance. In our foreign affairs coverage, we are interested in pieces on international political, economic and social developments. We are strongly committed to investigative reporting."
