Sybil's Garage 20

Do not submit here! This project is believed to be defunct.


Sybil's Garage accepts all works of speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy, horror, slipstream, etc.). We also will accept stories with little or no speculative element, but with speculative tendencies (e.g. weird but not-necessarily supernatural.) In addition, we are very interested in seeing stories written by and/or including varied ethnicities, social classes, and nationalities. We'd like to see more stories featuring under-utilized cultures and settings as well. Our editors and readers represent a variety of backgrounds and we're always working to ensure that our publication reflects that as well.
NONFICTION: We are always looking for unique artwork, mind-opening essays, interviews with interesting people, and other forms of non-fiction.

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.
