Welcome, all! We're so excited to bring our readers this collection of submission opportunities! No matter what you’re writing, this comprehensive page of submission calls will help you in finding great places to submit your work. We'd like to thank Entropy and Justin Greene for providing the foundation of this list.

A couple things to note...

  • This page will be updated monthly.

  • When the deadline says "now," this means that the press hasn't necessarily committed to "year-round," but submissions are currently open.
