SFWA Market Report—February 2022

Welcome to the February edition of the SFWA Market Report. Please note: Inclusion of any market in the report below does not indicate an official endorsement by SFWA. The markets included on this list all pay at least $0.08/word in at least one length-category of fiction.

New Markets

Assemble Artifacts Magazine (Please note: Some writers have been concerned with Assemble Artifacts’ submission terms, which resemble the submission waivers writers sign in the film/TV biz rather than literary ones. They fit the magazine’s film/media focus, but we always advise writers to review contracts carefully, with a lawyer’s advice if possible.)
