Departure Mirror submission guidelines

web site

Deadline: October 31, 2020

SUBMISSIONS VIA THE MOKSHA SUBMISSION PORTAL

What we Publish: Original fiction and poetry, all of which must be broadly “speculative fiction” (science fiction, fantasy, alt-history, magical realism, slipstream, or in some other way altered reality).

Length: 12,000 words or less preferred, but you may submit stories up to 20,000 words. 30 lines or fewer for poetry.

Rights Purchased: First worldwide English-language rights.

Payment: $0.10/word up to 3,000 words for fiction. $300 flat rate above that. $5/poem flat rate for poetry.

Simultaneous Submissions: Accepted. Please let us know immediately if your work sells elsewhere.

Multiple Submissions: Accepted on a trial basis. Please do not dump your entire trunk on us or this will change. For fiction, we recommend not sending us multiple submissions unless there is a compelling reason to do so (in case we send feedback). Please submit each story separately. For poetry, please submit up to 10 poems in a single file.

Reprints: By solicitation only. Query if your work was previously published but obscurely enough that you think it should not count.

Translations: Accepted for first worldwide English publication.

Response Time: We strive to respond to all submissions in less than 90 days.
