Taking Submissions: Cosmic Caravans
Deadline: October 7th, 2017
Payment: $.02 a word and royalties
B Cubed Press is proud to Open Cosmic Caravans for submissions. Cosmic Caravans is a science fiction anthology that will focus on Pre-Teen readers. The work will be illustrated.
We are looking for stories or poems that re-enforce strength of character and scientific principles in a way children can relate to. We want to entertain and challenge curious readers to learn more about the universe, life, and the science that makes it all possible.
See our Facebook Group, Cosmic Caravan
Your sci-fi story or poem can be funny, scary, somber, mystery, wibbly-wobbly, thriller, or a fantastical romp through time and space. Whatever it is, you should be sure to explain the science behind it. Leave the reader learning something.
Cosmic Caravans, from B Cubed Press: we’re putting the science back in fiction.
Guidelines + Other Info
● Submissions can range from 300-3,000 words. We’re looking for quality over quantity.
● Stories must be presented in age appropriate ways. Anything over a “PG-13” rating will be automatically rejected. If Star Trek wouldn’t air it, it’s too risky.

● Submissions are open from July 1-October 7. Please allow 2-3 weeks for our editors to review your stories.
● Manuscript format is required. Unsure what that means? Feel free to ask!
● Reprints are accepted.
