I've been hesitant to post this one for the Writer's Eye. It pays well for spec fiction, .05 cents per word, but they insist that you also provide a piece of artwork to accompany your writing. This is an ezine that seeks writer-artists.

When I went over there I found a photograph, digital art, paintings and 3-dimensional art, so their expectation of artwork is broad. My concern is that you're only getting paid for the writing. To the author's benefit, The Writer's Eye only asks for first rights. Please read the guidelines carefully.
