Fiction Stories Wanted for Magazine!

Odd Tales of Wonder Magazine wants to publish your stories! If you are a fiction writer who specializes in sci-fi, fantasy, horror, mystery, adventure, or any combination of the above, consider sending us a tale. As our name implies we want that which is Odd and Wondrous--the best the 21st Century can offer. Our submission guidelines are as follows (quoted from our website):

-Please use the following formatting: single spaced, even between paragraphs. 12 point font, Times New Roman. 1 margins, top, bottom, left, and right. No page numbers or title pages necessary, word counts optional. We accept .odt, .doc, .docx, and .rtf, but no PDFs, sil vous plait.

-Length: up to you. As seen on the About page, we will serialize longer pieces. And if you can tell a good story in 150 words, we'll take that too.

-Ask us beforehand about poetry"no non-fiction will be considered for the time being.

-If your story has been published previously under circumstances where copyright may be an issue, query first before submitting.

-Simultaneous submissions are cool, but let us know immediately when your piece has been accepted elsewhere. Please note that we will only publish one story per author per issue except under special circumstances.

-Though we have performed at least one experiment in book publishing (The Fires of '16 by Katherine Avalon) all book submissions will be treated as submissions for serialization in the Odd Tales magazine.

-All genres are welcome but we are definitely a genre fiction magazine: horror, sci-fi, fantasy, mystery, and adventure all get priority. Romance, drama, and slice-of-life will probably not get in unless we really like it.

-We are fine with vulgarity, profanity, and some graphic content. Keyword there: some. Your characters can have sex but it can't be erotica or porn. And while violence is fine, lengthy descriptions of extensive dismemberment will severely count against your story.

-Don't be racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, etc. Just don't be an asshole at any stage of the process. And yes, the editors are the ones who get to decide you're being an asshole.

-Be yourself, and be good to yourself. Don't write it if you aren't.

If this sounds like the thing for you, please submit your story to the email listed. We look forward to hearing from you!
Good news! We have your resume on file, you can use our Quick Apply function to easily apply to this job.
