Three literary journals that pay, plus two more

Villamere, the lowbrow magazine of high end CanLit, is a new literary journal. It’s looking for short fiction, creative nonfiction, essays, and poetry. And they’ll pay you $25 for your contribution. You can also submit your photography or illustrations or pitch them on a review of a book, literary festival, book-related event or some other such Canadian wordsy thing.
Villamere is also looking at ways to offer you non-financial compensation, “because your work is good and important and you deserve nice things. You will see that we have designed and run very handsome pro-bono ads for some of our contributors. This is one way we offer non-financial compensation. We are flexible and eager to work with you to help you any way we can.”
Deadline: On-going. Full submission guidelines here.

  1. What about lowtech writers like me? I'm embarasses to ask a librarian or a techy
    someone to save then follow the submittable rules. Why can't I just mail you
    poems, or a short story or an essay? Bret R
