Deadline: 30 May 2012
SEPTEMBER ISSUE - NATIVE AMERICAN FOLKLORE
There's a wealth of folklore, legend and mythology that has stemmed from the Native American peoples of America. Use this as the backdrop for an amazing story. It doesn't have to be Cowboys and Aliens, but then again it wouldn't hurt either.
HOW DO I SUBMIT TO PENUMBRA?
Penumbra publishes speculative fiction that always culminates in something unexpected - a flash of humor in the darkest tale or a fantasy piece that goes against the tropes--always something that hovers right on the periphery of the eclipse.
Penumbra is looking for speculative fiction that's unexpected and adventurous. We don't want the same old short stories--we want funny horror stories, or fantasy with a modern theme, or science fiction that takes the reader someplace they really didn't expect to go...even if its their own kitchen at home.
Word counts - 500 to 3000 words, paid at 5 cents a word.
Poetry - we will review poetry for each issue.
Please send a cover letter with brief publishing history and your entire submission as a .doc or .rtf attachment to email@example.com. Please put "Penumbra submission" in the subject line of your email. No simultaneous or multiple submissions please. We will consider reprints to rights reverted stories. We do not accept multiple submissions.
Initial response time is expected to be short, within 2-3 weeks. This is likely to change and any such submission changes will be listed here.
We absolutely do not accept fan fiction, not even thinly disguised fan fiction. We will review previously published, rights reverted material on a case by case basis. If you have any questions or need further information, please contact us using the contact form found on the Contact page.
