A project of Fairfield Scribes (see other related projects).

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions (May 2018). We provide the following information as an archive.


From the first popularization of the genre with H.G. Wells' The Time Machine, to cult books such as Slaughterhouse-Five and A Wrinkle in Time, time travel has long fascinated readers of science fiction and fantasy. The premise can be absurd, such as The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, or filled with adventure, like The Chronicles of Narnia. Characters can have a love story over the ages, such as The Time Traveler's Wife or travel far into a dystopian future, like Planet of the Apes. Regardless of style, time travel is a compelling sub-genre of science fiction and fantasy. To jump on board the time travel train, the Fairfield Scribes are releasing When to Now: A Time Travel Anthology, and we're looking for our feature story.
