Aesthetica Magazine - the cultural arts publication
The culture magazine for the emerging arts - is calling for submissions on a rolling basis. Aesthetica is undergoing somewhat of a change.

"Like the oft-referenced caterpillar", they say, "we hope that our next issue will emerge as something rather more beautiful. As such, the focus of our magazine will change from poetry and prose to creative writing of any form. Get more information from their web site:

Institute for the Study of American Popular Culture
This website is looking for good quality writing in a variety of writing formats. This is what they say:
"The Institute for the Study of American Popular Culture. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to education through the publication of exceptional American Studies scholarship, 1900 to present, and creative writing. We are especially interested in publishing material that examines such issues as social action, social justice, human rights, environmental awareness, the human condition, diversity, love, compassion, ethical and moral obligations. In other words, we are passionate about projects that empower and uplift humanity.
"We also believe that creative writers contribute to cultural creation and the recording of crucial ideas. Thus we heartily support their work. Creative writers are as important as our historians in terms of understanding and recording important cultural moments. American citizenship is not a requirement for submitting to our journals, press, or contests; the only requirement is that the work hold some appeal for an American readership and bear some relationship with American culture."

Irish broadcasting station RTE are looking for original radio essays, reportage, travel pieces and much more besides. Items should appeal to a world audience and should be around 700 words. www.rte.ie/radio1/sundaymiscellany

Jacqui Bennett Writers Bureau They say: We endeavour to keep this information as up to date as possible so that either on these pages, or in the News section, you should find a suitable UK publisher for whatever type of writing you're intending to submit.

Take a Break They say: Sell us your story! Complete the form and you could earn up to £2,000!...
All you do is fill in the form and one of our trained writers will get back to you. We will speak to you over the phone and assess your story. If it is suitable, we will agree a fee to be paid on publication. This can vary but in some circumstances can easily reach four figures. Then we will interview you in full, again probably over the phone if you prefer, and arrange to collect suitable photographs. We may even send a professional photographer to take high-quality pictures of you (and you will be able to have copies). Payment will follow four to six weeks after publication.

The Oldie Magazine  As the title suggests this is a magazine for the more mature reader. It is great fun! They say: We are happy to consider unsolicited articles on any subject. Articles should be between 600 and 1,300 words in length. We prefer pieces submitted by email. Please send to jeremylewis@theoldie.co.uk. Please attach pieces as Word documents, making sure that the document itself contains all your contact details. By post, send to Jeremy Lewis, Features Editor, The Oldie, 65 Newman Street, London W1T 3EG
Well-written articles on any subject are always welcome, and we are particularly interested in pieces for our 'I Once Met', and 'rant' slots. If photographs or illustrations accompany your piece, please send copies and not originals. We will contact you if we need to use originals for reproduction purposes. The Oldie cannot be held responsible for the loss or damage of any unsolicited materials.
Please do not submit anything to us unless you have read at least two or three copies of The Oldie and have a good feel for the magazine. Guidelines page: http://www.theoldie.co.uk/

The People's Friend They say: We're always happy to consider contributions from new authors. If you're thinking about writing a story, poem, feature or pocket novel for "The People's Friend", the most important advice to follow is STUDY THE MARKET.
Our guidelines are very specific about our requirements because we know exactly what our readers do - and don't - like. (These can be downloaded in PDF format from their website. Click here Ed.)

Woman's Weekly They say: Fiction is a vital ingredient of Woman's Weekly, the place where readers can escape and switch off. This doesn't mean predictable plots or old-fashioned romances. Escapism means getting involved in a really gripping tale with believable characters. Above all, we are looking for originality and a wide variety of themes and moods, such as mystery, humour, relationships and family issues, with warmth still an important factor. Try to be subtle in your writing and remember the maxim: "Show don't tell". We recommend you read several issues of Woman's Weekly and Woman's Weekly Fiction Special to get a feel for our audience.
At th time of writing their requirements are:
For the weekly magazine: Short stories of 1,000 and 2,000 words. Serials in 3 or 4 parts of 3,300 words each.
For Fiction Special (At least 20 stories 12 times a year): Stories of 1,000 to 8,000 words.
