ical Google outlook Calls for Submissions For Writers

MYTHIC, a publication for original sci-fi and fantasy stories, is open for submissions December 1, 2018–February 1, 2019. Works should be 2,000–6,000 words. The editors write:

Science fiction and fantasy have been put into boxes in recent times by standard tropes, conventions, settings, and so on. We at MYTHIC want to be a place where under-represented visions in science fiction and fantasy can once more be explored. We want wider, more diverse views of the future and realms of the fantastic that don’t necessarily involve quasi-medieval settings.

Does this mean we aren’t interested in more traditional tales? Not at all. Bring us your space operas, your sword & sorcery, your lost world adventures, swashbuckling adventures in mystical lands, or throwback stories that hearken to the rip-roaring yarns of the old pulp fiction days. Surprise us.

  1. Just a submission question. If a story is chosen to be published, is the author allowed to promote the story and or the issue on their facebook and other sites? Also what is the standard exclusivity time?

    • I’m not associated with Mythic, so I can’t answer those questions. If you follow the “for more details) link in the post, you can find info on who to contact.

      That said, most publications welcome it when authors want to promote the publication.
