Monday Market - Shimmer Magazine - Speculative Fiction

Shimmer Magazine has recently tripled its pay rate to 3 cents a word, and is increasing its size by 50%. This is great news for readers and writers alike. They are looking for:

Unusual and beautifully-written speculative fiction stories with full plots and strong characters. The best way to understand what we are looking for is to read an issue of the magazine. We’re most drawn to contemporary fantasy, and seek out stories with a strong emotional core. We like unusual stories with a fluid and distinctive voice, with specific and original images. Send us your odd unclassifiable stories–though we prefer traditional storytelling mechanics to experimental approaches.

They want short fiction up to 5000 words, so have a look (and read the magazine!) to see if it suits.
