Strange Horizons will be open to fiction submissions on October 3rd, 2022, at 9 a.m. UTC! To keep our response times manageable and submission windows more frequent, there will be a 1,000-story cap on submissions. Please note that a previous version of this page stated an opening date of October 1st. We have since updated and changed it.
Once we receive 1,000 stories, we’ll close our portal while we work through your stories. If our portal is open, we are still accepting stories, but once it is closed, please do not send us your work.
Please see our fiction submission guidelines for more details on how to submit once we open and what we publish. Since we are using a story cap, we encourage authors to submit promptly!
But don’t worry, if you happen to miss our October open submission period, we will re-open again in the future.
