Paying Markets

Markets listed below are either published within the furry fandom or are of particular interest to furry writers due to their themes or focus (for example, werewolf or shapeshifter fiction). Remember, many non-furry markets—especially science fiction and fantasy publications—may be open to anthro-themed fiction. For help finding non-furry markets for your work, see Other Market Databases.

Anthology markets are listed by deadline. (Currently there are no always-open periodical markets; when we have some to list, they’ll be listed alphabetically after the anthologies.) For a calendar view, Howl has kindly provided us with a Google Calendar of closing dates.

Always read the guidelines before submitting! If you have questions, contact the editor or publisher directly.
