Empyreome is seeking original works of short fiction. Although we prefer science fiction and fantasy, we will consider any story with a speculative element. If your story does not have a speculative element, please do not send it to us.Length: Up to 10,000 words. Flash up to 1,000 words. Prefers 5,000-7,000 for magazine.
We like stories in which interesting people do interesting things and make interesting things happen. We do not like stories in which flat characters are merely acted upon by forces beyond their control, and nothing interesting happens.
We are particularly interested in stories that offer hope, joy, and inspiration to the reader, but we will consider all submissions that are well-written and artful.
Payment: $0.0025 (one quarter of one cent) U.S. for stories up to 10,000 words. For stories below 400 words, $1.00 U.S. per story.
