12 Short Story Publishers that Pay $1,000 or More

The following is a list of publishers that pay $1,000 for short stories. Included in this list is a variety of types of publications, including literary journals, magazines, and eBook publishers. Some of the publishers pay more than $1,000, some occasionally pay less, but all of them pay $1,000 for at least some of the stories they publish.
The list is dominated by publishers of science fiction and fantasy. This is in no small part thanks to the efforts of the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, which works hard to ensure writers are paid fairly.
