The Written Tales magazine is self-funded; we are not able to pay for submission at this time. Our long-term goal is to pay writers for the work we accept for publication. Once we are financially able, we will. Please keep checking back on our guidelines as we update often. To learn more about the magazine, please read the about page. Thank you.
