These deadlines are, as always, Submitter Beware, because I can’t vouch for any of these publishers. This is basically just a place for me to deposit deadlines to which I would like to submit work, so all the markets are paying (usually at least $.01 a word) and accept electronic submissions. They’re all genre markets of some kind (horror, science fiction, steampunk, fantasy).

Edit (September 2): Some deadlines I missed the first time around:
Apocalypse Hope – September 30
Evolved Short Story Contest – September 15
Enchanted Conversation: Little Red Riding Hood Issue – September 27-30
Sarah, I’m so enjoying your posts, but a special thank you for including a list of publishers and impending deadlines.
No problem Chante! I figured that if I was putting together a list for myself, I might as well post it in the hopes that it will benefit other writers.
