About

Tell us the most amazing story you've ever heard, even if you haven't heard it yet. Write us a story about love and the wind and how it feels to smash your foot with a brick. Talk about the time that you were standing in line for seats to a lecture about the global impact of robot flowers and the guy next to you told you the meaning of life. We want to hear what's in your heart. We want to read the words printed on your soul. The first story for each issue of Unbound Octavo is UNTHEMED. Each subsequent reading period seeks fiction that uses the current story as a "springboard" for the next installment of the narrative.

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.
