I discovered a new (to me) source for fiction and poetry publications, Big Pulp. Big Pulp is a quarterly magazine whose formats include both print and electronic. They accept fiction and poetry in several genres – Fantasy, Mystery, Adventure, Horror, Science Fiction, and Romance. They explain that their definitions of these genres are quite broad. Horror stories, for example, can reach beyond the zombie or vampire story to explore man’s inhumanity. Their concept is to recreate the Golden Age of Pulp, when newsstands were crowded with scores of periodicals that appealed to a wide variety of interests.
Big Pulp pays for the submissions they accept, by the word. Right now, the submission window is open until May 31. To learn more about submitting work to this magazine, visit their submissions page at http://bigpulp.com/submissions.html
