What they want:
We are currently seeking exciting, entertaining, thought-provoking, and well-written speculative fiction (broadly defined), without limitation on content or theme.

We believe there are many ways to write a good story, so we won't try to limit what we're asking for. In general, a good story keeps you turning pages until the end, and a great story keeps you thinking about it long after that. Of course it's subjective, and our editors represent diverse tastes, so the best thing to do is to submit and see if we like it. Aside from being a good story, with all that entails, some things that might earn you extra points include: innovative stories that grapple with important issues; diverse perspectives; complex or intellectually-stimulating ideas conveyed in a compelling way; stories that resist simple paraphrase and make the reader think; stories that have cool or exciting premises that readers want to share after reading.
Length: 100-10,000 words (2,000-5,000 words preferred)
Payment: Fiction: CAD 1.5c/word; Poetry: CAD 25c/line ($10 max for poetry)
