Last edited July 16th, 2015

We are open for speculative fiction, poetry, prose (fiction & non-fiction), graphic novels & art submissions. Stories should be speculative fiction related (a mix of sci-fi, fantasy, magic realism & futuristic), and non-fiction pieces should tie in creatively to the speculative genre. 

What to Submit:

  • Prose: We accept works between 500 - 10,000 words in the speculative fiction & non-fiction genres. Multiple pieces may be submitted as long as the total word count is <10,000.
  • Poetry: We accept between 1 - 5 poems per submission, to a max of 50 lines each.
  • Art & Photography: Submit a 1-page abstract and up to 5 pieces to review.
  • Unreleased Work: Currently, we are not accepting reprints.
