Taking Submissions: Liminal Stories

January 15, 2016


Deadline: January 15th, 2016
Payment: 6c/word

Liminal is searching for stories of a particular tone and tenor, regardless of form.  We like stories that are strange and unsettling, sharp-edged and evocative.  Although we will consider any genre, we have a soft spot for weird fiction, magical realism, soft sci-fi, and those uncatagorizable stories that straddle the line between genres.  Liminal stories should linger in the mind and evoke emotion in the reader.

We will consider stories up to 10,000 words, and pay 6c/word on publication.

Liminal isn’t a market for poetry, reprints, or non-fiction. We don’t accept simultaneous or multiple submissions.

Seeking Diverse Voices

The editors of Liminal believe that fiction is enriched by diverse voices. We welcome and encourage submissions from writers of every nationality, race, sexual orientation, religion, and gender.

How to Submit

Send submissions in .DOC or .RTF format to [email protected]. Please use Submission: [Story Title] as your subject line. Include your story’s title and length in your cover letter. Don’t stress over what to call us. We’ll answer to Editors, Shannon and Kelly, or Ms. Peavey and Ms. Sandoval.

Please use Standard Manuscript Format for all Liminal submissions.

Response Time

We try to respond to all stories within 30 days. Please query if you haven’t heard from us. Use Query: [Story Title] as your subject line.
