Prompt #9 – Speculative

Submissions due: 7/17/13

Selected Poems to be published: 7/31/13


This issue we’ll be accepting poems and prose in the specultaive genre. What is speculative? Well, we think Suzette Haden Elgin of the Science Fiction Poetry Association defined it best: it is any work based in “a reality that is in some way different from the existing reality.” Think science fiction. Alternate histories. Fantasy. Horror. Superheros and villains.

Surprise us.

We’re looking for both serious and fun pieces, from the smallest SciFaiku to a good short story.  But a word of advice – we will not be publishing fanfiction.



Also, we are still taking submissions for our collaborative contest.  Check it out!

$50.00 first place prize, no entrance fee.
