Alternate Realms Magazine is seeking submissions for short form fiction up to 3000 words in length, to be published on our website under the category “Free Friday Fiction.”
Stories must fall into the genres of Science Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Weird, or Speculative Fiction, although they may blur genres. We have no requirements for theme or tone (light, dark, funny, serious). All settings and time periods are welcome. In fact, all we ask is that submissions be well-written and self-contained (i.e. a complete story as opposed to excerpts, which have their own spotlight on our website). Have fun, use your imagination, push boundaries if that’s what you feel called to do.
We currently pay US$.01 per word with a minimum payment of $5.
