Payment: $3.00 for short story, $2.00 for flash, $2.00 per poem, and $3.00 for cover art
Deimos eZine accepts flash fiction submissions of stories up to 1,000 words in length, short stories of up to 6,000 words in length, and poetry, though it must adhere to the subjects Deimos usually considers. Deimos also considers original artwork for cover art. We accept submissions year round.
Fantasy, science-fiction, horror, slipstream, alternative history, fairy tale, weird tale, and creature stories are what we like to see. We want original storytelling, no vampire, zombie or werewolf stories, unless they bend the expected stereotype. We like stories with language that haunts us, stories that are blunt and shocking, stories of triumph and of failure, stories that are absurd, stories that you want to tell your friends about.
Deimos eZine Guidelines
1) Submit your original, unpublished work in Standard Manuscript Format with Submittable in DOC, or DOCX formatted file. Please keep to Times New Roman 12pt font, double-spaced, unless your submission is poetry in which your submission should appear as it would in print. Any other format will be auto-rejected. Submit fiction and original artwork via Submittable. File format for art should be pdf.
2) Include a brief cover letter stating your name, story title with word count, byline, address, and any publication or educational credits you think might be of interest.
3) Please send only 1 fiction submission at a time. Poetry is limited to three poems. It usually takes 1-2 months for a response.
4) Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please inform us if this is the case, and also inform us immediately if the piece is accepted elsewhere. Multiple submissions are not accepted. Payment for original fiction is $3.00 for short story, $2.00 for flash, $2.00 per poem, and $3.00 for cover art. Payments to writers and artists are made via PayPal.
5) Please do not query before 60 days.
6) For original fiction and poetry, we buy first world rights, exclusive for three months, nine months of non-exclusive e-rights after those three months, and non-exclusive anthology rights for three years.
