Monday Markets - Augur Magazine (via @augurmag)

Augur is a Canadian speculative fiction magazine looking for your submissions:

We’re looking for dream-touched realism, slipstream, fabulism, magical realism (note: educate yourself before you claim this term) and, for lack of a better descriptor, “literary” speculative fiction. Our perfect submission defies categorization—pieces that could be “too speculative” for CanLit magazines or “not speculative enough” for speculative magazines.

That said, we’re no strangers to rich realism, high fantasy, and science fiction, so if you think you match our tone, give us a try. We recommend checking out our preview issue, free online, or grabbing an issue, to see what we’ve published before.

They have reading periods ending January, May and October each year but I don’t have precise date ranges. I’ll update the entry when I find out (or if one of you knows, feel free to update it for the rest of us).

Augur buys fiction pieces between 1,000 and 5,000 words, paying 6c CAD per word ($60 minimum). They’re also after poetry, paying $40 a piece. Check out their site and see if you’re inspired!
