Illustrated Worlds is a new quarterly magazine specializing in fantasy, dark fantasy and horror. Publishing both new and established artists and authors, the following guidelines will give an idea of the sort of submissions we’re currently looking for.
Fiction – Short fiction should be 5,000 words or less. Stories should contain an element of fantasy, dark fantasy, horror, whimsy, magic realism, mythology, folklore or fairy tale type inspiration. Send a Word document attachment to [email protected]. Please do not type the body of the submission into the email.
Poetry – Poetry is NOT the main focus of this publication, but I am open to publishing poetry if it is particularly outstanding, but I’m sorry to say that the chances of poetry being accepted are not high.
Art – Looking for moody, mysterious, fantastical art in the genres of horror, dark fantasy and fantasy. Needs are for one piece of art for a cover printed in color, but plenty of black and white art is needed for the inside. Please send good quality JPEG images to [email protected].
As this is a new magazine, payment is rather small at the moment, but hopefully, with growth, creators will eventually receive the pay they justly deserve. As of right now, fiction will pay one copy of the printed magazine and 1 cent per word. Poetry will pay one copy of the printed magazine and $10. Cover art will receive one copy of the magazine and $50. Inside art will receive one copy of the printed magazine and $10 – $20 depending on the size of the printed version. The creators retain all rights to their work, but contracts will stipulate permission for Illustrated Worlds to have one time use for publication for both electronic and printed versions.
