We are now accepting fiction submissions for our Brazil Special issue!

This will be published at the end of September 2019, so this is a very tight window: we are from now until Sep 23—don't wait till the end to send your work in!

Please note: this call for submissions is completely independent of regular Strange Horizons submissions, and is a separate queue with a different schedule. Only the details on this page will apply.

This issue focuses specifically on speculative fiction by writers who are from or have roots in Brazil. We especially welcome work by Brazilian writers who are Black, indigenous, disabled, and of marginalized genders and sexualities.

Genre: speculative fiction, broadly defined, including science fiction, fantasy, horror, surrealism, weird, interstitial, etc.. There is no theme.

Word limit: 4,000 words. No lower limit, shorter preferred.

Language: English, including work that has been translated into English.

Format: Please send only RTF, DOC, or DOCX files and try to stick to standard manuscript format as much as possible.

Multiple submissions: Yes. You can submit up to two stories at the same time, but please submit them independently as separate files. You're welcome to send more after receiving responses.

Simultaneous submissions: Yes. Please indicate clearly in your cover letter if so, and withdraw promptly if accepted elsewhere. Response times will be quick for this call.

Reprints: Yes. Please indicate clearly in your cover letter if a story is a reprint and where it was previously published.

Pay rate: 0.08 USD per word for original fiction.

Deadline: Sep 23 2019

No email submissions. Please submit stories using the submission form via the link below.

Submit here! All stories should be submitted using this form: https://strangehorizons.moksha.io/publication/strange-horizons/17/submit

Cover letter: In your cover letter, please do briefly mention where you're from or where your roots are, so we have some idea of your relationship with the region that this special issue is focused on.

If you have any questions at all, please email fiction@strangehorizons.com.
