Six Ezines Looking for Submissions

Looking for somewhere to submit your work? Here are six ezines that are seeking fiction submissions.

The Were-Traveler ( has published eight issues so far. Each issue is centered around a specific theme, but there is a good deal of latitude for creativity. Upcoming issues include Crossroads: The Realm of Death; The Little Magazine of Magnificent Monsters; and The Day the Zombies Ruled the Earth. They normally look for works from 100-2500 words long.

Myths Inscribed ( is the ezine associated with the Mythic Scribes website, a site devoted to fantasy writers. They are seeking primarily fantasy, but consider cross-overs with a significant fantasy element as well. The ezine is published quarterly. One special feature of Myths Inscribed is their Warp and Weft feature each issue, which is a story that has been extensively revised through one-on-one interaction between the author and one of the editors.

Strange Horizons ( specializes in speculative fiction, and looks for science fiction, fantasy, horror, and slipstream. They accept fiction, poetry, reviews, essays, and interviews. New stories are published on the website weekly.

Lightspeed ( is a science fiction and fantasy magazine that publishes its stories free online, as well as selling in an ebook format. According to the site, "No subject is off-limits, and we encourage our writers to take chances with their fiction and push the envelope." The magazine has been closed to unsolicited submissions, but will start accepting them again on June 20. Lightspeed pays .05 per word for unpublished fiction.

Crossed Genres ( is published online monthly, as well as in print anthology form twice a year. The magazine looks for science fiction and fantasy, and every issue has a specific theme that must be followed. They do not accept poetry. Word count 1000-6000. They pay .05 per word, and reserve at least one spot in every issue for a new/unestablished author.

Beneath Ceaseless Skies ( is published biweekly, with two stories in each issue. It is a well-established magazine with more than 120 issues published so far. They are looking for "literary adventure fantasy" - that is, exciting character-driven fantasy adventures written with a strong literary flair. The magazine pays .05 per word.
