$200 for Essays On Being an Artist

nothing to say is an online literary journal of critical essays about what it means to be an artist in the 21st century. They also run a small press that has previously published poetry.

They’re also unique in another way: They advocate for the free copying and distribution of work, which means all of the essays they publish are distributed under a creative commons license, because they “believe that which can be copied without cost should not be arbitrarily made scarce for profit.”

They read submissions year round, and pay “a base-line rate of $200 for a typical article.” Most of the essays are 1,500 to 2,000 words.  They ask for a pitch first, and not the complete essay.
