Monday Markets - Unwinnable Monthly (via @unwinnable)

Unwinnable Monthly is looking for story pitches on their April theme of Good & Evil:

You have stories to tell. We want to hear them. We are always searching for new voices to add to the conversation at Unwinnable and we firmly believe that personal experience is the foundation of a great Unwinnable story. More and more, we are drawn to this intersection between the culture we love and the lives we live – and  how that intersection informs our actions and influences our decisions. That means everyone has a story. Even you.

Note that they want pitches, not full stories. They will commission the work if it sounds like something they want to publish:

Send us a short paragraph that tells us concisely what you want to write about. That’s it! Two hundred or so words ought to do it. In the subject line, make sure you include the words ‘Unwinnable Story Pitch’ followed by a title that reflects the story. Type your pitch in the email – no attachments, please.

They pay a flat $50 plus a contributor copy, for stories between 1,000 and 1,500 words.
