What we want:
We are looking for original works of fiction from 300 to 5000 words to feature in our magazine. We want to offer a broad spectrum of stories from every Science Fiction subgenre. So send us your robots and space cowboys. Send us your dystopian-alien-invasion-post-apocalyptic-cyberpunk tales. We like weird. We like adventure. We LOVE SCIFI!!
We are also looking for Science Fiction poetry of up to 40 lines and articles on or about Science Fiction of up to 2500 words.
Like all lit mags, we have high standards. In saying that, we know that writers often do not always appreciate their own work, so put your doubt aside and send us your most polished short story masterpiece.
If your work is accepted for publishing, we may request certain edits. The occasional typo is perfectly normal, but we don’t want a story littered with them. If we require structural edits or a slight changes in the story itself, we will message you with our suggestions and leave the edits in your capable hands.
All payments will be based on the final word count after edits.
