Protean Literary Magazine Submissions

Protean is an online literary magazine that pays writers or contributor's for their works.

According to the Magazine,
 Exposure doesn’t pay the bills, so we do our best to compensate freelancers fairly, offering the highest rates that we can afford. We do not expect contributors to work on spec. We pay in full on acceptance—not on publication.

Protean Magazine Submission Guidelines

They do not have a submission fee.

Submit using the appropriate email inbox, as outlined below.

They publish work geared explicitly to the anti-capitalist left.  Please take that into strong consideration when submitting.

They will always reject submissions with racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, classist, ableist, or otherwise bigoted content.
Simultaneous submissions are fine—just let them know.

They typically do not accept republications of written works. The make exceptions for poetry that has appeared on social media and unpublished excerpts from upcoming books (rights permitting).

All submissions (criticism, fiction, and poetry) should include a short bio, past bylines, and other relevant information in the pitch email.

 When pitching an article, tell them why you’re the right person to write this piece.

If your pitch is time-sensitive for any reason, please explain.

Their preferred format is a Word document (.doc) attached to your email. (Please don’t send work in .pdf format.)

Calls for submissions for their print editions will be announced via social media and a post on their website. Please do not submit for print unless there is an open call.

 All questions should be directed to editorial@proteanmag.com.

Related Magazines That Pay Writers

Critique, Essays & Reviews
If you’re interested in submitting criticism, news analysis, essays, or film or book reviews, send them your pitch or your work at submissions@proteanmag.com.

 Completed pieces should be sent as an attached .doc file. Simultaneous submissions are acceptable.

They typically look for pieces longer than 1,500 words and no longer than 4,500. 

Rare exceptions can be made, so please explain if a longer length is absolutely essential for a proper treatment of the subject. However, in general, they would much prefer that your article falls within the above range.

The starting rate for film and book reviews is $175. The starting rate for criticism, news analysis, and essays is $200. They will offer increased compensation for pieces with longer word counts, or that require extra reporting and/or research. Rates are negotiable.

If you’re interested in submitting short fiction, send works to fiction@proteanmag.com as an attached .doc file. Fiction pieces should be between 1,000 and 4,000 words.

The starting rate for fiction pieces is $100.


If you’re interested in submitting poetry, send as many as five poems in an attached Word document to poetry@proteanmag.com. Please include a short bio with bylines or details about you and your work.

 Simultaneous submissions are fine, as is work that has previously appeared on social media. Poems need not be explicitly leftist, but it’s preferable.

They pay $30 per poem.
