Markets

I took three popular rankings: BookFox’s Ranking of Literary Journals, Perpetual Folly’s 2010 Pushcart Prize Rankings and The Rankings (I used the lists for Best American Nonrequired Reading, New Stories from the South, Best of the Web and storySouth Million Writers Award, since their other lists were already well represented). Journals got a point for appearing on a list, and another point for being in the top half (or so). The list was looking a little fiction-heavy to me, so I added The Best American Poetry 2009, 2008 or 2007 (2 points if they had more than one poem selected). I’ve added at the end a list of other (mostly paying) markets that interest me or that I want to investigate further. I used Duotrope extensively for details about submissions guidelines (but any errors are probably mine).

I omitted markets I couldn’t find any information about; that have gone out of business (DoubleTake, King’s English, Lamination Colony, Nebraska Review, etc.); that charge submission fees (American Short Fiction, Arts & Letters, Colorado Review, Mississippi Review, Missouri Review, Narrative, etc.) or don’t take unsolicited mss (3:AM Magazine, At Length, Bear Parade, etc.); non-paying markets that had only one point and don’t take poetry or reprints (Ballyhoo Stories, Beloit Fiction Journal, Fiction Weekly, etc.), and markets that are just wildly unrealistic for me to submit to (Atlantic Monthly, Esquire, Harper’s, The New Yorker, etc.).

speculative markets

 
I’m listing speculative (science fiction/fantasy/horror/magical realism/metarealism)/genre markets separately. Some of them (Aberrant Dreams, Abyss & Apex, Apex, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Café Irreal, ChiZine, Clarkesworld, Coyote Wild, Fantasy, Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, Pedestal, Strange Horizons, Tiferet, Tor.com, Weird Tales) appeared on the rankings, despite my leaving out genre awards like the Hugo and Nebula Awards, and my separating them is not from any motive other than simple convenience for my own submissions.
 

 

a note on failures of methodology

 
If the goal of this market listing were to produce an objective, tiered ranking of markets, there would be a few problems with my methodology: poetry markets are underrepresented (markets which solely publish poetry would find it well-nigh impossible to be in the 5-points-or-more list), and the way I assigned points erases the differences between markets which did very well in a specific area and markets that did middling well, and flattens the differences between those at the top of a list and those at the bottom. Markets from the South are slightly over-represented because that’s the only region I gave its own point category (unless the web is considered a “region”). Happily, I was not trying to create anything approaching an accurately tiered list; I don’t believe such a list is even possible.

(If you’d like to comment on this list, please do so here, since I can’t figure out how to enable comments on this page.)
