Open short story markets – revised!

A couple of new markets added! Listed in order of closing date – some closing very soon…

1. Twelfth Planet Press is seeking original, unpublished fantasy stories of between 2,500 wds and 7,500 wds, set in the 1920s and fun, for Speakeasy. Details here. Closes September 30, 2010. Twelfth Planet Press also has open reading for the novella and novelette doubles series’.

2. FableCroft Publishing is calling for (Australian only) submissions to After the Rain, a speculative fiction anthology for stories between 2,000-10,000 words. Details here. Closes October 31, 2010.

3. Liz Gryzb is editing More Scary Kisses for Ticonderoga Publications. Paranormal romance stories of between 1,000 and 8,500 words are wanted. Details here. Closes November 1, 2010.

4. Submissions of 1,000 to 7,500 words from Australian and overseas contributors are encouraged to the Aussie vampire anthology Dead Red Heart from Ticonderoga Publications. Closes December 1, 2010. Details here.

5. Although the CSFG website hasn’t been updated to reflect this, submissions for the next CSFG Publishing anthology, Winds of Change, are welcome from 15 September 2010 and 31 January 2011.

Winds of Change will be edited by Elizabeth Fitzgerald. Stories may be any length up to 5,000 words. All approaches to the theme are welcome, as long as they are by nature speculative.

Payment will be contributors’ copies plus $10 for stories under 1,500 words and $25 for all others based on published word count.

Submissions are encouraged from Australian writers of all levels of experience, with special encouragement given to CSFG members.

Submissions should be sent (as .rtf attachments only) to windsofchange.csfg@gmail.com. Please make sure that the following information is in the email proper:

7. Midnight Echo 6 is now open for submissions and the editors are seeking science fictional horror stories (or "creepy alien fiction" as one editor puts it!) up to 5000 words – unsure of closing date as the website hasn’t yet been updated, but the guidelines for the issue are available here, and I’m sure closing dates will appear soon.

8. Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine is almost always open to global submissions of up to 10,000 words (20,000 for Aust & NZ writers). Comprehensive guidelines here.

9. Aurealis is also an open market for Australian speculative fiction between 2,000 and 8,000 words – submissions from overseas by query. Guidelines here.

ETA: Thanks to Ben for reminding me – there are also some online markets (paying and unpaid) open.

a) Moonlight Tuber edited by Ben Payne (surreal, absurdist or otherwise non-realist material).
b) AntipodeanSF edited by Ion Newcombe (flash fiction, unpaid).

    You know what’s funny? I just wrote a story for a specific Australian market, and it’s not one of the ones you mentioned. Fail for the win! 😉

    Nice list, Tehani! Thanks 🙂
    PS. Moonlight Tuber is still open to subs too.

    And speaking of electronic markets, Eclecticism, as far as I know, is still open to submissions too (www.eclecticzine.com). It’s not exclusively spec-fic, but it does seem to lean that way.
    Ticon4 might be open, might not …

    Journal
    I saw Lanagan too and I’m really looking forward to reading her work. I’m also curious as to the new journal you’re working on. Could you tell us some more?

    AtR IS brilliant. Mine arrived today thankyooouuuuu
    Um, yeah, and that Tassie house? Its a long term investment, yeah? Like, more than 20 years before you expect capital gains? Don’t think the Tasmanian property market is particularly bearish.
    But then again, if you listen to Dirk, you will need it to flee to when the apocalypse comes 😀

    I’m not on Facebook, alas, Tehani, and have no intention of opening a Facebook account till I absolutely have to. I’ll look out for the other one.
