5 Magazines Currently Accepting Submissions

We are halfway into the second month of the year already, and there are literary magazines that want to read the prose and poetry pieces you have finished polishing, that are sitting on your laptop collecting e-dust. I have curated a list of magazines that are currently open. They are all free to submit to; three of them will pay you if you get in.

Please kindly shoot your shot.

AGNI

Up until 31 May, AGNI, the award-winning, Boston University-published magazine, will accept submissions. They want fiction, nonfiction, and poetry.

Six of the magazine’s contributors have received the Nobel Prize in Literature. Other prominent ones: Jhumpa Lahiri, E. C. Osondu, Sarah Ladipo Manyika. AGNI pays.
