Taking Submissions: New Myths Second 2023 Window
Deadline: July 31st, 2023
Payment: 3 cents per word for fiction and poetry, $50 for book reviews, $80 for artwork
Theme: Fantasy and Science Fiction stories
Note: This outlet does accept clearly-labeled AI generated content which will be controversial to many
Good news for 2023: NewMyths.com pay rates have doubled!
Reading past issues is the best way to know if your submission is a good fit for NewMyths.com.
We like to balance each quarterly issue between science fiction and fantasy, dark and light, serious and humorous, hard and soft science fiction, and longer and shorter works.
Our readers are not fixated on a single style or tone or genre, but prefer a
quality sample of the field. Think tapas or dim sum. Maximum length is 10,000 words.
New Myths considers submissions between January 1-February 28 and June 1-July 31.
Artwork, requests for book reviews, and other correspondence can be submitted at any time.
Artificial Intelligence Policy and contests
Both human-only and AI-generated work now welcome
If we could detect AI-generated content with 100% accuracy, we would not allow it.
But since that is not the case….
NewMyths will accept AI-generated content if you label it as such. Please use the
honor system. If you used an AI tool to create a draft of your work, no matter how
many times you rewrote it, please label it as an AI-generated story. NewMyths
will attach the “AI-generated” label to the published story.
Other uses of AI, such as for generating ideas or spell checking, need not be flagged.
Copyright and AI
This is still being worked out by the courts. NewMyths reserves the right to
remove any content from its archives if such content comes under a copyright
AI Creators Contest—Fall 2023
NewMyths will run a Human-only versus AI-generated contest in our Fall 2023 issue.
Readers will vote on their favorite stories and poems. Top three vote-getters will
receive one, two, or three of our original ebook anthologies respectively, in
addition to standard pay rates.
After the contest ends, the AI-generated stories will be revealed. Look for details
in the Fall 2023 issue….
Spot the Bot Contest—Winter 2023-24
In our Winter, 2023-24 issue (release date Dec 15, 2023) readers who properly
identify all the stories or poems generated by AI will receive a free ebook copy of
our first three anthologies: Passages, Twilight Worlds, and Neosapiens.
Look for details in the Winter, 2023 issue….
Payment is upon publication. NewMyths.com currently pays 3 cents/word with a minimum payment of $50 for all submissions, fiction, flash fiction, nonfiction and poetry. We purchase book reviews for $50. We purchase art for $80.
NewMyths.com acquires first publication rights only (we are not interested in stories that have already been published elsewhere). Authors retain their copyright on all works after first publication on the NewMyths.com website. By submitting content to NewMyths.com you agree that, should the content be accepted, you grant NewMyths.com a non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable right and license to digitally archive and display the content (aka Digital Archive Rights). In the case that we later desire to include your content in any other format (e.g. print, anthology, etc.), those rights will be separately negotiated at that time. Simultaneous Submissions: No problem. We ask that you please indicate in your submission that your story is a simultaneous submission, and notify us as soon as possible if it has been accepted by another publication.
Responses to your submissions may take as long as six months. Feel free to send a follow-up email query if you have not received a reply before the next submission period.
