    Here's one:

    Sage Woman
    And their submissions guide: http://www.sagewoman.com/submit.htm

    All submissions should focus on issues of concern to Pagan and other Goddess-friendly women. We accept non-fiction prose related to women's spiritual experience.

    Llewellyn submission guidelines

    Llewellyn annuals submissions (pdf)

    Llewellyn general contact info


    They aren't kidding about deadlines. Even if they lose your submission! ~laughing!~

    What I did find working with them is that they really seem to be just regular folks. I haven't encountered any egos, and the paycheck was on time.

    They aren't huge on fiction, although they will consider it.

    If you're interested in subbing fiction to Llewellyn, they have two separate imprints for that:

    Midnight Ink, which is their fiction imprint for grownups: http://www.midnightinkbooks.com/subm...guidelines.php

    Flux, which carries YA titles: http://www.fluxnow.com/submission_guidelines.php

    I found this on Witchvox today: http://www.tarotworldmag.com/writers.htm

    It's a new magazine, and she doesn't pay for submissions, but it might not be a bad way to get a few pub credits for those interested in building clips for the pagan market. I'll be sending her a review of my Jane tarot deck.

    The other day, I was looking in Writers Market and found a listing for newWitch. Here's their guidelines.

    Twilight Manor Press

    I just stumbled on it and I haven't researched very much. Something to check out, at least.

    Edited: Never mind. They were listed as pagan, but turned out to be fantasy based.

    This website has a list of sevaral markets:

    http://www.thegreenwolf.com/poarp.html

    Here's another:

    http://www.cronechronicles.com/

    I'm wondering if you guys know of any mainstream magazine that might accept fiction that is pagan related?

    Disa, wow, thanks for the great list! The Green Wolf is a very handy page, and I've bookmarked it. I'm not really up on fiction markets, so I don't have an answer for your question, although possibly the fantasy markets would be an option, like Realms of Fantasy.

    A publishing house that accepts personal stories/vignettes, artwork etc as it relates to all things women. The last deadlines for next years calendar are past (I think) but still a lovely little publication.

    FYI New Witch is now Witches and Pagans, and Listen Media is no more (If... Journal).

    The Goddess Oracle accepts submissions for each Sabbat edition.

    Vanilla Heart is quite pagan-friendly.

    Hi all,

    Keep in mind that if you are looking for fiction markets, you'll find that many publishers will consider work with a Pagan theme, even if the publisher isn't specifically Pagan. You'd be surprised how many Pagans are scattered throughout the small press industry.

    Check out this blog and look at the book list and you'll find we're published by a number of publishers who aren't specifically Pagan.

    Very true, mariedees. I find that it's another story with agents, though. Finding one(s) who are pagan or pagan-friendly, and understand magickal practices, energy work, or specifically, modern uses of shamanism... Not an easy task.

    I've chatted with agents at conferences and found that most who work with fantasy, fantasy romance, erotic romance and similar genres have no problem working with Pagan clients. Many will mention an author or two that they already represent who is Pagan or Wiccan. I think what you may be seeing is that regardless of their feelings about Paganism, they will still choose to represent authors and books based on what sells in the market. If a fiction work with a Pagan theme can appeal to a wider market, the chances of selling it increases greatly because the number of buyers has increased.

    An agent's job isn't really to understand magical workings but to know if any of the big markets out there are currently interested in publishing books featuring it as a topic. If the publisher's interest isn't there, they can't sell the book. It doesn't just happen with Pagan topics. I've had agents tell me they weren't interested in seeing my mystery novels because those aren't selling and ask if I have romance or can make the mysteries into romantic suspense because those sell better.

    A similar thing happens with Pagan non-fiction. If the largest publisher is Llewellyn and there isn't much competition in the market as far as advances offered for books, agents aren't going to be interested. Because they just aren't going to make money from representing the book. Understanding magical workings won't change that.

    They have sister publications "Crone" and "Witches and Pagans", I have done some unpaid illustration work for the latter and found them to be enjoyable to work with.
