Taking Submissions: Terrific Tomorrows

May 31

Deadline: May 31st, 2024
Payment: Contributor’s copy and 3 cents per word for original work or 1 cent per word for reprints
Theme: Family friendly science fiction with positive visions of the future
Note: Reprints welcome

We’re looking for stories for our next family friendly anthology, Terrific Tomorrows! We’re looking for science fiction with positive visions of the future, stories that leave the reader excited about the possibilities ahead.
By “family friendly,” we mean stories an adult can enjoy, but also share with a 10-year-old. No gore, no cursing, and no stories where violence is a solution. We’re looking for tales where people think their way out of problems.

We’re now open for submissions under 3000 words. Query with a short pitch if you have something longer that you think is a great fit for the theme.
We accept original stories and reprints. We’ll pay 3 cents a word for original stories and a 1 cent a word for reprints, plus a contributor’s copy of the paperback.
Email submissions to [email protected]. Our deadline is May 31, 2024.
