Monday Markets - Mithila Review (via @MithilaReview)

Mithila Review Issue 1 was just released:

Mithila Review is a literary speculative fiction and poetry magazine. We are open to original submissions as well as translations from around the world. We are open to submissions from around the world, and intend to be a professional market with standard pay rates in time. We’re counting on your excellent stories and support. Thank you! “Mithila is a referent. It is a symbol. It can speak to the times when we have felt that we don’t quite belong. It can speak of the times when we have felt the urge to lurk away and disappear or the times we’ve felt the need to stay. It can speak to the time when we liberated our anger and pain in ways that have only fed the creative river within us. Mithila Review is space for our collective celebration and playful engagement with language. We hope that it can speak in all kinds of ways.” – Ajapa Sharma, Editor

They're looking for essays, short fiction and poetry, but don't specify length beyond that. It seems as though they accept both unpublished and reprint work. As a new magazine, they say only, 'Payment varies', with a comment about paying for their upcoming anthology. Keep an eye on these folks, as they are looking pretty promising.
