Venue for longer short stories

What print fiction magazines accept longer short stories?

I'd like to publish a story, but am having trouble locating venues (preferably print, but would look into established online venues if needed) that don't have a word maximum under my length. Does anyone know of any journals that have no stated word limit or one that allows stories up to 20 thousand words in length (or even slightly lower, but still high limits)?

AGNI has no word limits for submissions. Glimmertrain takes submissions up to 20,000 words.

You can use length as a search criterion on the Duotrope listings.

Literary Laundry publishes novellas (it says 10,000 to 30,000 words), and I believe are currently accepting submissions. I'm not sure if they publish stand-alone novellas or if it would be part of a larger publication.

Also what genre is your story? For example there's the Writers of the Future competition for sci-fi/fantasy, which accepts stories up to 17,000 words. They publish print anthologies yearly and have some of the biggest names in sci-fi as judges.
