Does anyone know of any reputable literary magazines which publish this type of short story? I would prefer a magazine that takes free submissions.

You should check From short fiction to a novel – Psicofrenia Aug 26 '13 at 9:49

Please have a look at these links. They can be of help :

1) http://www.world-newspapers.com/literature.html

This website contains all the literary magazines in which you can publish your short fiction stories.

2) http://www.writerscentre.ie/html/resources/literaryjournals.html

This website is a long hub of literary activity that supports aspiring writers. It is a non-profit organisation, a registered charity, with the remit of promoting writers and literature at home and abroad.

I think this will help.

Once you've used lists like these to identify magazines to submit to, you can also look at the magazines' submission guidelines, and the fiction that they have already published. These will help you narrow down your list of markets even further.

Welcome to Writers, and thanks for answering. Providing tools (as you've done here) is an excellent strategy. However, answers that are primarily just a link are much better if they are expanded, possibly by quoting some of the relevant material. Would you be willing to do this? Possibly you can mention some of the relevant publications. (Also see this answer for more information about this.) – Neil Fein Aug 31 '13 at 16:34
Hi Neil Fein, thanks for the suggestion. – Sweet72 Aug 31 '13 at 17:25
That's great, thanks! I've taken the liberty of adding an additional paragraph of text, but please revert my edit if you find it's not helpful or a logical part of your answer. – Neil Fein Aug 31 '13 at 17:34
Hi Neil Fein, It's perfect for my answer. Thanks a lot once again. – Sweet72 Aug 31 '13 at 17:45
