Front Porch Commons, a new online forum for the independent literary publishing community from the Community of Literary Magazines and Presses (CLMP), is launching this summer. The forum is accepting submissions of blog posts (500–1,000 words), essays (1,500–2000 words), and long articles. While funding lasts, Front Porch Commons will pay $25 for essays and $50 for long articles. Blog posts are unpaid. Email pitches or pieces to email@example.com with the email subject “Front Porch Commons + Submitter’s Last Name,” attaching pieces as Word documents.
