A great newer e-zine that accepts speculative fiction/poetry is The Sword Review.

Thanks for the suggestion, Mel. Here are a few additional details about The Sword Review.

Its website is at It is a magazine of fantasy, science fiction and other genres. They say: "Unlike other print and electronic mediums, The Sword Review is safe, free from offensive language and content. Our high standards are based on traditional values and Christian principles."

The Sword Review is a paying market. They pay 1/2 cent per word up to $25.00 ($5.00 minimum) for one-time electronic rights. As well as short stories, they publish poetry, reviews, articles about writing, and so on.

Full contributors' guidelines can be found at

What a great e-zine and writers' site! I have just logged in and registered. I partuclarly like it's Christian ethic (though I acknowledge that might not cut much ice with others). I suppose that's probably because I am one!

I will keep you / mywriterscircle posted with any views I form from being a member / contributing.

Best wishes

Hello Everyone,

I'm Glad you appreciated the tip about Sword Review.  I've been paid for two poems and have written three columns for them.  The editor, Bill Snodgrass, is great to work with.

Once you are logged in, there are "artist tools" offered.  One I particularly like is submission tracking. It's a form where you can list works "out", works accepted, and works published.
