Vraeyda Literary

Prose with punch, elegance and beauty. You've got your science fiction/fantasy/magic realism/futurist/experimental/poetry manuscript in a .docx, or .pages. We publish speculative fiction (novel or novella) and poetry. When submitting a larger work for review, please include a 1 page abstract on the nature of the work and a 1 page summary of your editorial experiences. We do not accept excessive gore, erotica, homophobia or childrens/youth lit. Our body of work tends to lean toward hope or solutions to issues instead of despair. While this concentration on catharsis does not mean 'hollywood endings', it does mean more attention is paid to works where some form of consolation or hope is maintained in the end.

  • Poetry Collections: >35 poem collections will be considered, as long as the theme of the collection correlates with the speculative fiction genre. The entire manuscript should be larger than 75+ pages prospectively laid out.
  • Novel: Vræyda Literary accepts novel manuscripts between 50,000 - 175,000 words. Novels must correlate with the speculative fiction/experimental genre. Larger works or novel series will be considered based on abstract, pitch, promotional considerations & quality of work and editorial response.

Vræyda Literary aims to respond to submissions within 45 days of reception. Please do not respond to rejection letters, or ask us how you can improve your story. Take it, re-work it.

We will only accept full manuscripts and intend to read the entire manuscript prior to acceptance or rejection, please don't give us a 3 page synopsis or only the first chapter, but the full work.
