About

The Leading Edge is a semi-professional speculative fiction magazine produced at Brigham Young University. Leading Edge began in 1980 as an outgrowth of a creative writing class; today the magazine has international contributors and subscribers. Our staff is 100% volunteer and the Leading Edge experience is considered one of the best on campus. We have had many authors and former staff members go out into the publishing world and find great success, such as Dave Wolverton, Brandon Sanderson, and Dan Wells. Orson Scott Card's work has also appeared in Leading Edge.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
