RANGE MAGAZINE
http://www.rangemagazine.com/guidelines/index.htm
RANGE magazine is an award-winning quarterly devoted to the issues that threaten the West, its people, lands, and wildlife. RANGE needs (1) stories about working family ranches successfully tending land and livestock, (2) solid profiles of working cowboys and sheepherders, and (3) interviews with government employees and environmentalists who have made a positive difference for people on the land. Regular features, tightly written, run 1,200-2,000 words; mini-features 600-1,200 words. Columns and “Confessions of Red Meat Survivors” (great nostalgia about people over 80) run 500-650 words. Payments are from $50 to $400 per article. RANGE buys First North American serial rights.

MOTORCYCLE MOJO
http://www.motorcyclemojo.com/editorial-guidelines/
We are proudly Canadian and  one of less than a handful of Canadian motorcycle magazines on the newsstands in a sea of American titles. We are a family-oriented motorcycle magazine that focuses on all types of road-going motorcycles, touring, history and destination articles. Destinations, meaning somewhere you can ride to for a weekend (or longer) and take in an event or a festival of some nature. A travel story may be a weekend trip just to ride the roads of a certain area, it could be a two-hour ride or a two-week ride, or longer. We are especially interested in travel within Canada or south of the border – some place Canadians can actually ride to. Small stories can be 600-800 words while travel features might run into 2,000 words.

McSWEENEY’S

We publish fiction and nonfiction. There are no rules. The best way to get a sense of what we’re interested in publishing is to read the Quarterly. Read articles online and note the quirky sense of humor required in the stories accepted.

Asimov’s Science Fiction magazine is an established market for science fiction stories. Asimov’s pays 8-10 cents per word for short stories up to 7,500 words, and 8 cents for each word over 7,500. We seldom buy stories shorter than 1,000 words or longer than 20,000 words, and we don’t serialize novels. We pay $1 a line for poetry, which should not exceed 40 lines. We buy First English Language serial rights plus certain non-exclusive rights explained in our contract. We do not publish reprints, and we do not accept simultaneous submissions.
