Fiction Believed Defunct

You can write literally about heavy metal as a subject, setting, character, etc. Or, you can explore popular metal themes. The key, though, is to write something that evokes in the reader the same general feeling they would get while listening to their favorite metal band. I suggest listening to your favorite metal band and see what pops into your head. You might find the seed to the Great American Metal Novel.

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 book publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
