Submission Guidelines

 

NOTE: We are currently closed to general submissions. We are accepting submissions for short stories for the upcoming uaaf benefit anthology, or novels/novellas by referral only.

What we're looking for:

We focus on fiction that is rooted in the real world, but which twists away from the constraints of reality to take the reader on a thrilling adventure. We'd love to see your novels and novellas that are:

  • For older YA and General Adult audiences (readers 16+)

  • In genres including (but not limited to):

    • Urban Fantasy

    • Paranormal / Supernatural

    • Near-Future Science Fiction

    • Portal Fantasy

    • Horror

    • Magical Realism

Send us your books that follow unreal protagonists in very real cities. Give us your stories about the unseen world that exists alongside our own. If you've got a well-written novel or novella with both real-world appeal and something extraordinary going on, there's a good chance we want to see it.
