About

Our goal is to feature works from writers who are passionate about inspiring readers with both real science and real people. We are looking for stories that not only entertain but also encourage readers to reflect on and critique contemporary society. These stories should, at times, address significant topics such as social norms, religion, nationalism, racism, politics, and various forms of sexism, all within a science fiction context. A sense of humor is often welcome. We want to publish writing that is both thought-provoking and enjoyable to read. Science Fiction can be a powerful tool for both exploring the future and for imagining the kinds of futures we might like to live in. Join us and help us create the future!

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
