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).
Please be sure to check Duotrope Digest, Ralan, and Dark Markets for more publications looking for submissions. This list is by no means exhaustive. Oh, and don’t forget to check posts from previous months (they’re all categorized under “Upcoming Deadlines”) for publications that are still open.
