Payment: five dollars (USD) per poem and flash piece, and ten dollars (USD) for fiction.

Devilfish: weird, tenacious, improbable. It’s what we are and what we’re looking for.
We value good writing and good stories above all else. Send in your science fiction, your fantasy, your horror, and even your mainstream fiction stories (as long as they are well written). Your stories and the characters they contain should be your own. We want the new, the undiscovered, so no previously published works, please.

In exchange for first publication rights, we offer five dollars (USD) per poem and flash piece, and ten dollars (USD) for fiction.

Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know as soon as possible if a story is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work, this includes your personal website. If you don’t hear back from us after three months, please feel free to drop us an email.

Response Time: Average 2 – 3 months
