We publish literary and genre fiction in the following categories: Adventure, Fantasy, Horror, Science Fiction, Mystery, Romance, Thriller, Western and other categories of general fiction. We will accept Poetry but it can be a hard sell. We do not publish erotica. We do not put restrictions on what can be submitted as far as theme, but strong sexual themes can also be a hard sell. We never get enough historical fiction, westerns, or humor. If you have any of these story genres, please send them to us. NOTE: We accept stories previously published in semi-professional and/or professional markets.
Length: 500-3,000 words
Payment: Pay ranges from Token payment to Professional payment (5 US cents per word) for fiction.
