Sophon Lit an international literary magazine for dreamers of all ages 2

About

In Liu Cixin's Three Body Problem sci-fi series, sophons are proton-sized supercomputers sent by aliens to observe, and ultimately thwart, the human race. Omnipresent and undetectable, they seek the smallest places to wreak magic upon Earth; silent watchers with a godly hand. While not necessarily embracing the destructive tendencies of Three Body's aliens, Sophon Lit strives to embody the spirit of the sophon itself; searching, sharing, and touching across worlds. Send your sophonic epiphanies, your furled wisdom and strange philosophies. Solve us the Fermi paradox, or create your own. We welcome the uncanny with splayed arms.

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.
