Submit: Electric Literature

via Practicing Writing:

"Electric Literature’s mission is to spark a revival of the short story by pairing captivating narratives from America's best contemporary writers with innovative new forms of distribution."

Pays: $1,000 for each of the five stories published every other month. (via Duotrope.com)

From their website:

Founded by writers uncharacteristically optimistic about literary publishing, Electric Literature has come together with Michael Cunningham and Jim Shepard to usher literary fiction into the digital age. The result: Electric Literature No. 1, a publication you can read as an e-book on your Kindle, pop open on your iPhone on the way to work, or simply slip into your back pocket as a paperback. Streamlined for all mediums, its flexibility stems from its simplicity: just five great stories that grab you.


The current issue features contributions by T. Cooper, Michael Cunningham, Lydia Millet, Jim Shepard and Diana Wagman.
