Thanks to my time management schedule I have more time to focus on writing inspirational fiction stories. Since I’ve already written a few stories, I figured it was time for me to search the Web for paying fiction markets that offer writers a decent amount for their fiction. I discovered quite a few markets that buy fiction, and I’d like to share a few of them with you.
Paying Fiction Markets for Your Stories
Boston Review – This fiction market reads fiction submissions between September 15 and June 15. Pay varies.
Broken Pencil – Looking for never-before-published stories between 50 and 3,000 words. They pay a minimum of $30 for any story they publish in their magazine.
Flash Fiction Online – Accepts literary fiction with a minimum of 500 words and a maximum of 1000 words. They pay $50 per story for first electronic rights and a non-exclusive one-time right to publish your story or stories in their anthology.
New Love Stories Magazine – Buys stories between 2,700 to 3,800 words. Payment is $300 upon publication. This paying fiction market will also give you complementary copies of the magazine that your story appears in.

Pedestal Magazine – This fiction market will accept literary and genre fiction of high quality. They pay $.08 per word.

The Sun – Offers $300 to $1,500 for fiction.
As always, before you submit to these or any other paying fiction markets, you should visit their websites to read the complete guidelines. If you follow the fiction markets’ guidelines, you’ll have a better chance of receiving an acceptance letter.
Do you buy fiction stories or know of any other paying fiction markets? Feel free to share the details of the markets you know about in my comments area. Happy writing and submitting!
