CLOSED: Polu Texni
This market no longer meets our definition of ongoing. We will post their calls as we see them go live.
Payment: $20 for a poem
Theme: Poetry on SF or fantasy themes
We are currently open to submissions, but we do have a big pool of accepted pieces so will be reading very selectively.
Polu Texni is looking for articles, poems, or art profiles that pertain to our themes. Submissions can be sent to submissions at polutexni.com.
Non-fiction: This is our current biggest need. We are looking for articles on future art, technology and art, fannish culture, emerging media, art and science, or art and fantasy, among other things. Feel free to drop us a quick email with an idea and a short bio before you write, although we are unlikely to make a commitment before reading the finished piece. We will pay 3 to 5 cents a word.
Artist Profiles: We want to run profiles and interviews on speculative artists. We want to hear from mixed media artists, and artists with less exposure. Please send photos or links to photos, and if chosen we will contact you for an interview.
Poetry: Poetry on SF or fantasy themes. We prefer strong visual images. We pay $20 for a poem. Please send one poem per email, in the body of the email. Please, no attachments. It’s OK to send multiple poems, but please send them in separate emails. We might make an exception for attachments if your formatting is particularly fussy, but also be warned that WordPress isn’t the best tool for finicky formatting so this is not the best market for pieces that rely on careful visuals. If you have a suggestion for an accompanying photo or illustration, let us know if your poem is accepted.
Book Reviews: We would like reviews of books pertaining to our themes, either speculative fiction books, art books, illustrated books or graphic novels. Pays 3 cents a word.
Please contact me at submissions at polutexni.com if you have any questions.
