About

Camera Obscura is a Latin term that simply means "dark room."A camera obscura is therefore nothing more than a dark box or room with a pinhole at one end, and at the other, the projected image, in color, upside down, of the world outside the dark box by virtue of an amazing natural property of light traveling through a small hole. Add a mirror and you can turn the image right side up or direct it, add lenses to magnify the image, warp it, or project it onto paper and trace the image as Vermeer did, as Caravaggio was rumored to have done. We are the dark box. Your work is the pinhole.

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.
