We are currently accepting fantasy, paranormal, and magical realism fiction manuscripts for digital and print publication. We are interested in following types of manuscripts:
Novella Length: 40,000 - 50,000 words
Novel Length: 51,000 - 100,000 words
For short stories in these genres, submit to "Strange Fictions 'Zine."
All Subgenres: Young Adult, High Fantasy, Paranormal, Urban Fantasy, Humorous, Surrealism, Magical Realism, Pagan, Mystical, Contemporary
We are seeking stories about all nationalities, ethnicities and sexual orientations and want to encourage submissions with diverse and unusual characters. We prefer quirkier characters and quirkier story lines, humorous and clever, non-typical and intelligent heroes and heroines, with character-driven stories.
Provide a pitch and brief synopsis of your work on the first page of your manuscript. A pitch is the blurb you would see on the back cover of a book, and a synopsis is a summary of the whole story, from beginning through the climax and through the conclusion. It does not have to be detailed, but should include all story turning points and the resolution of the story.
Please put the pitch and synopsis on the first pages of the manuscript and attach the ENTIRE manuscript for consideration. Submissions without pitches or summaries or without the entire manuscript will be declined without being read, although we may notify you and ask you to resubmit with the correct supporting materials.
