Short Fiction Submissions Open till December 5th

Calling all writers!  We have a very short submissions opening period on right now!

For this period we are specifically looking for

  • Science Fiction.  We like all forms of spec fic, from alternate history to space opera.  But it’s been a while since we’ve had much good old fashioned hard SF come through the inbox.  Send us your best!
  • Mystery. We’re always well-served with the cozy Stella Rymans and the time-travelling Seven Swans, but we’d also like to see some shorter whodunits. Have you got an intriguing and original mystery that’s 5000 words or under?  Send it in.
  • Stories by Indigenous Canadians.  Since most of us in BC are guests on First Nations’ territories, we’d love to print more stories by the descendants of Canada’s first people.

Submission guidelines, form, and pay rates here

Please note that due to the large number of submissions we receive we can’t reply personally to every submission.  If you submitted in a previous opening period and haven’t heard from us, we are unable to take the story.  If we have contacted you to say its still under consideration, be patient.   Sometimes it takes well over a year to find the right issue for a story we like.
