It's entirely possible for a 1000-word article to fetch $100, and for a 2000-word article to fetch $75. Articles over 2000 words may be split across more than one issue." Submit query by e-mail.
HINTS: "Don't assume that you are one of God's great gifts to magazine journalism. Don't assume that, just because your writing is worth x hundred dollars in one market, it's worth that to us. Do assume that, if we see something of value in your writing, we will work with you to develop it."
