F&SF - Fiction

New Submission

« Back to F&SF

We strongly prefer to read stories submitted in standard manuscript format like that described here: http://www.sfwa.org/2008/11/manuscript-preparation/: in short, that means double-spaced, one inch margins, and a serif typeface like Courier or Times New Roman. Please include your contact information on the manuscript. We consider story lengths from flash up to 25,000 words. We do not consider simultaneous or multiple submissions.

When you submit, you will receive a confirmation email with a tracking number and link to let you see your story's progress in the submission queue. Our current median response time is 10 days, but we take longer on stories that make our second read queue. There is a 14-day waiting period after we respond to your submission before you can submit again. Please wait 90 days before querying about the status of your story.
