You Get Paid!


Over 60% of our subscription fees go straight to the authors.


We want you to get paid. That's why more than 60% of our subscription fees go straight to you. Payment rates vary based on how many subscribers we have active when your story goes live, but we also guarantee minimum rates for our authors.

Don't forget about the extensive back catalog!

A portion of every subscriber's fees go to the authors of our back catalog - so your stories keep earning over time, even though you've already done the work!

What We're Looking For

We want stories that meet the following guidelines:

  • Stories should be Science Fiction and Fantasy.
  • Stories should be between 3,000 and 20,000 words.
  • There is no theme - topics are wide open.
  • Stories that are part of a larger world or series are acceptable.
  • Submissions should be original and not previously published.

SPECIAL HOLIDAY STORIES


In addition to the 52 normal weekly stories, we're also looking for special holiday-themed stories to use as bonus stories throughout the year. In particular, we're looking for stories centered around the following holidays:

  • New Year's Day
  • Valentine's Day
  • Halloween
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas

However, stories centered around other holidays will be considered.

Bonus stories pay the same as regular stories!
