The Rag is currently accepting submissions of short fiction for its 7th issue. We  offer the industry standard “pro rate” which is $0.05 per word, the average being about $250 per short story. The pro rate is our minimum standard for publication. If we have any remaining funds at the end of the year we distribute those funds to the authors as a bonus.

We take submissions online here via Submittable or through the regular mail. There is a $3 fee to submit online, though that fee is waived if you subscribe or purchase a single issue: see the categories below. 100% of the revenue we receive from online submission fees goes to paying our contributors. If you prefer to mail your work, you can find our address and the mail-in guidelines here: www.raglitmag.com/mail-in.html. If you’d like read The Rag before committing to a submission, you may do so by reading our “best of” issue, which is available for free on the web: https://raglitmag.creatavist.com/story/6954
