New paid writing opportunity!
Thank you, as always, for subscribing to receive updates from Sylvia!
If you would like to support Sylvia to pay more writers, you can now become a member!
My goal is to grow the site to the point where we can publish new, paid-for work every single day. I would love your help to get there. There are several perks to membership including an invitation to submit your work for two days before the official submission window opens.
A new submission window is opening soon!
We are welcoming submissions from the 16th to the 26th August. All of the details can be found here.
This submission window is particularly for autumn and winter pieces as there are many spaces to be filled in the coming months. If you have something that is more suited to spring or summer then please save it for a future submission window. (I appreciate that some of you will be in the southern hemisphere! I am working on a way that Sylvia can be seasonal for everyone around the world, but for now, we’re working with the seasons in the northern hemisphere.)
Sylvia is for readers and writers. I would love to hear from you about what you would like to see the Sylvia community do in the coming months. Please feel free to reply to this email with your suggestions!
One thing that I am working on is creating a list of other literary magazines that pay for pieces. This will go up on the site to help you find more opportunities. If you are involved with, or even just know of, other journals that pay then please do send their details my way.
Happy reading and writing!
