Fiction Closed

We want the stories trapped in the beekeeper’s lips. The ones you had to pry apart with honey and promises. We want the stories whispered into keyholes while the rain ate the world away, and we want the stories carved on stones and fed to the sun. We want the stories the giants left behind when they went riding towards the north, and the stories that were told to keep the riddle eater in his caves. We want shapes of long stories and short stories, of essays that engage us intellectually and articles that pull out our eyes and place them in a bowl. Length is length. We’re also very open to all voices from any aspect of reality, and love hearing from oppressed, the estranged, the outsiders.

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.
