WritersMarket.com lists more than 6,000 opportunities to get paid for your writing efforts. Here are four recently verified and updated listings for regional magazines.

Back Home in Kentucky pays $50-200 for assigned articles and $50-100 for unsolicited articles (so it pays to query first with this magazine). The editors say, "We work mostly with unpublished or emerging writers who have a feel for Kentucky's people, places, and events. Areas most open are little known places in Kentucky, unusual history, and profiles of interesting Kentuckians, and Kentuckians with unusual hobbies or crafts."


Memphis Downtowner Magazine pays a variable rate that typically runs around 15¢ per word for nonfiction articles of 600 to 2,000 words. The editors say, "Actually read the magazine before you pitch. Get to know the regular columns and departments. In your pitch, explain where in the magazine you think your story idea would best fit."


Susquehana Life pays $75-125 for nonfiction features of 800 to 1,200 words. The editors say, "When you query, do not address letter to 'Dear Sir'—address the letter to the name of the publisher or editor. Demonstrate your ability to write. You need to be familiar with the type of articles we use and the particular flavor of the region. Only accepts submissions with a Central PA angle."


Syracuse New Times pays $25-200 for nonfiction features of 250 to 2,500 words. The editor says, "Syracuse New Times is an alternative weekly that is topical, provocative, irreverent, and intensely local. Move to Syracuse and query with a strong idea."
