Sorry this is so late everyone! I’m working two jobs, taking a class, and editing an anthology at the moment, so I just couldn’t get to this post until now. Also, now that Duotrope has become a paid-subscriber site, finding deadlines for us is a bigger challenge (if anyone has suggestions of other websites similar to Duotrope I’m all ears). Fortunately I like challenges!
Sword and Mythos – February 15
Once Upon a Clockwork Tale (queries only) – February 15
The Time Traveler’s Almanac (reprints only) – February 28
Penumbra Magazine: Ocean – February 28
The Future Embodied – March 1 – March 30
Penumbra Magazine: HG Wells – March 30
Fairly Wicked Tales – March 30
Far Orbit: Speculative Space Adventures – March 31
Wily Writers: Horror – March 31
Wily Writers: Dark Vengeance – April 30
Wily Writers: Psychic/Magical Detective – April 30
Fearful Symmetries – May 1 – May 30
Looking Landwards – June 10
Drabblecast – ongoing
These deadlines are, as always, Submitter Beware, because I can’t vouch for any of these publishers. This is basically just a place for me to deposit short story deadlines to which I would like to submit work, so all the markets are paying (usually at least $.01 a word+, or royalties) and accept electronic submissions. They’re all genre markets of some kind (horror, science fiction, steampunk, fantasy).
Please be sure to check Ralan and Dark Markets for more publications looking for submissions. This list is by no means exhaustive. Oh, and don’t forget to check posts from previous months (they’re all categorized under “Upcoming Deadlines”) for publications that are still open.
If you’re an editor or publisher and you’d like me to feature your deadline here, you can email me at sarah.hans at gmail dot com with the details.
http://thegrinder.diabolicalplots.com/ does the same thing as Duotrope, but promises to remain free forever.
Thanks Graham! I have heard of Grinder before but I haven’t used it. I’ll have to sign up!
