$200 for Narrative Essays

Catapult is a relatively new literary publisher, with a focus on telling non-fiction stories that celebrate the kaleidoscope of life. They also host writing classes taught by award winning writers.

Their magazine publishes narrative non-fiction on diverse topics, as well as fiction, and interviews.

According to their website:

“We publish stories that celebrate life. In its continuously evolving, spontaneously rearranging development of possibilities. Stories that reveal all the layers—the sinews and hairy knuckles, the iron and meat of history and influence. Stories that begin with a profound act of observation and tumble out from there. We believe it’s in the sharing that primary colors become kaleidoscopic, that flat circles bloom into spirals, that the self-obscuring liminal haze dissolves, and we see. And, perhaps for the first time, are seen. “

They are currently accepting submissions of narrative non-fiction for their online magazine. Essays should be between 500 and 6,000 words.

According to reports, they often pay $200 for more for the essays they publish.

Be sure to carefully study their website before submitting, to make sure your idea matches their aesthetic.
