What type of submissions you are looking for: Poetry, featured reviews, and scholarly articles in the Speculative Fiction genre.
Information on Contests: The theme for our premiere, 2012, issue is: Communication and Information We are looking for submissions that express the idea of gathering knowledge and sharing it with others? as a central element of the story or article. Telling stories, and understanding what is being shared, are what defines us as human. We want to invite the speculative fiction community to examine this topic, either in fiction, poetry, or scholarly articles. Speculative fiction allows us to look at the world through different lenses, and we are excited to see your vision of how we share our ideas with each other.
