We are looking for fiction, nonfiction, and poetry of the speculative and fantastic sort. We especially want to give representation to those whose voices are often marginalized.
Nonfiction is a new category for us, and we're not quite sure what to do with it yet. Give us your literary analysis, your philosophy, your personal essays. We'll consider it all, so long as it still pertains to our mission of publishing works under the speculative fiction umbrella. We prefer 5,000 words or fewer, but we don't go counting. As with all work we publish, we ask for first publication rights (so please do not submit a post from your blog, unless it's undergone heavy revision), and pay ten US dollars via Paypal. We will be publishing one piece of nonfiction per issue for the foreseeable future.
Currently, we pay ten dollars USD via Paypal per poem for first publication rights.You may submit up to five poems simultaneously, but submit each individually. We do read poetry submissions blind. Please do not have your name on or in your submission. Format them as they should appear when published on the website. We accept all forms, but limit prose poems to 5 pages. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know as soon as possible if a poem is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work, this includes your personal website. If you don't hear back from us after three months, please feel free to drop us an email.
We are especially looking for poetry that fits in with the speculative bent of our fiction.
