mixer publishes post genre fiction rather than straight genre or literary fiction, so submit fiction that subverts and resists traditional sci-fi, horror, noir, and romance tropes. For realism, we tend to publish pieces that are doing something interesting with language, form, or that go against contemporary realist cliches (e.g., the realist epiphany, the traditional character arc); or that even question reality itself. If you submit a story under realism that is really about a love relationship, we will (if we publish it) likely publish it under romance. Take a look at our online publications for an example of our style.
Length: Short stories & poems.
Payment: For e-magazines, we offer a 50/50 split of royalties with the author. One format will be special issues focused on a single author (only one author in the magazine); hence, the author will receive 50% total of royalties. Our second format will be multi-author theme-based magazines, with two or more authors. Thus, in a multi-author magazine, the authors' 50% of royalties will be divided amongst them equally; for example, if there are five authors in the magazine, each author will receive 10% of 50%.
