  • Word count requirement – 1000 or so to about 7500 words, give or take some.
  • Please put your full contact details on the first page of the short story top left. Also, please include your word count total for us so we have an idea up front.

We purchase First Electronic Rights, First Print Rights, Anthology Rights, First North American Serial Rights, Nonexclusive Reprint Rights, Translation Rights and Archival Rights. Please remember that you can only sell your various “First” rights once. You will only be able to market your accepted story as a reprint, once we have published it, which may limit where you can submit it to in the future, and how much you may be paid for it. Only you can make this business decision for yourself.
