AntipodeanSF 5

About

Yet while its intent is in part to highlight and promote Australian/NZ writers (who are, after all, resident in the antipodes), the meaning of Antipodean is not limited by the editor to a mere description of locality. Thus AntipodeanSF is open to submissions from anywhere in the world, as long as the story has a surprise ending, twists normal notions of SF upside-down, is especially humorous, takes an oblique perspective on otherwise 'normal' events, or attempts to subvert the foundations of Western capitalist ideology (for example). Such dire restrictions on story size mean that character development and in-depth treatment of complex subjects are almost invariably precluded. In short-short (flash) stories such as those AntipodeanSF 'online' seeks, the idea is paramount.

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.
