In your submission please include, in a single document: a query letter and the first 10 pages of your book. A synopsis of 1-2 pages is optional. In your query letter please provide a paragraph or two focusing on the main plot and themes of your book, with an emphasis on what makes it unique and


  Full details What we want: We are looking for original works of fiction from 300 to 5000 words to feature in our magazine. We want to offer a broad spectrum of stories from every Science Fiction subgenre. So send us your robots and space cowboys. Send us your dystopian-alien-invasion-post-apocalyptic-cyberpunk tales. We like weird. We like adventure. We LOVE SCIFI!! We are also looking for Science Fiction poetry of up to 40 lines and articles on or about Science Fiction of up to 2500 words. Like all lit mags, we have high standards. In saying that, we know that writers often do not always appreciate their own work, so put your doubt aside and send us your most polished short story masterpiece. If your work is accepted for publishing, we may request certain edits. The occasional typo is perfectly normal, but we don’t want a story littered with them. If we require structural edits or a slight changes in the story itself, we will message you with our suggestions

Reckonng Press

 Full details  The short version: creative writing and art about environmental justice. The fiction we publish is mostly, but not exclusively, speculative; the nonfiction is more creative than journalistic, the poetry tends towards the narrative, preferably with some thematic heft, the visual art leans away from the pulpy towards the surreal, subversive, political. But the heart of what we want is your searingly personal, visceral, idiosyncratic understanding of the world and the people in it as it has been, as it is, as it will be, as it could be, as a consequence of humanity’s relationship with the earth. We are actively seeking work from Indigenous writers and artists, writers and artists of color, queer and transgender writers and artists, and anyone who has suffered the consequences, intended or otherwise, of dominant society’s systemic disconnect with and mistreatment of the natural world. And we’re actively seeking new ways to reach all of the above. Seriously, if y
