Thank you for your interest in FictionMagazines.com. We are the only short fiction publishing company that produces a monthly magazine in each genre, and we are the only company to offer royalty compensation for short fiction. We hope you see the benefit of publishing with us.

We ask that you send only one submission of your writing to us at a time.

We want your absolute best work. If your work is declined, we may ask that you do not submit again unless directed otherwise. 

Rights

We want one month exclusivity for your story, as well as first publishing rights. So when your story runs in one of the magazines, from when the day the issue comes out for one month it cannot be up anywhere else online. After that one month exclusive period, you can republish the story elsewhere to publications that accept previously published work. Previously published work not accepted.

 

Story Selection

Stories are voted on by a peer committee of volunteer writers and readers known as curators. Editors make the final call using feedback from curators. Generally, our reading time is about one month, but it can be stretched up to six months if the magazine is highly competitive. 


Compensation

Writers who contribute a piece of writing are entitled to a lifetime royalty on individual issues sales. The participating writers for each issue split 50% of individual issue sales revenue. So a month from the day the story is released, until the end of time, our system will track sales of issues your work is in and have an account for you which will pay out automatically as soon as the total amount is $25.

 

Circulation

The magazines are up for subscription sale through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and FictionMagazines.com Individual issues are sold everywhere ebooks are sold. eFiction Magazine, the most literary of the bunch, is in the Top 5 Best Rated Arts & Entertainment magazine in the Kindle store.

 

Formatting

Submissions that do not follow the following guidelines will be declined immediately. The perfect submission has:

  • Word count in the top right.
  • No manual returns within paragraphs (allow word processor to format lines).
  • Title centered on the page with only name (or pen name) underneath ("by" is unnecessary).
  • No special text characters.
  • 15 point standard serif font (Times new roman, Courier, Cambria, etc.).
  • Single spaced paragraphs. Use only double returns or three stars (* * *) for scene changes.
  • .RTF, .DOC, or .DOCX format.
