Legal Question in Intellectual Property in Massachusetts

A magazine accepted my essay for publication. The publisher answers my emails and questions about everything I ask but whenever I ask when I can expect the agreed -upon payment for the essay, he does not answer back. He does not answer my phone calls. What recourse do I have legally with this fellow? I hate to think he has cheated me and published my essay without paying me but it does feel like that might be the case. Thank you.
