Payment – If you invoice us within one month after publication, we will send you a payment. For original commentary, fiction, and poetry, Contrary Magazine pays $20 per author per issue, regardless of the number of works or nature of the submission. If you are enquiring about the status of a submission, you can determine the status immediately. Contrary begins each issue cycle from scratch, holding over no submissions. If an issue has appeared since your submission, and your submission is not in it, then your submission was not accepted. If an issue has not appeared since your submission, your submission is still in consideration, and we will contact you if it is accepted.
