I thought I’d pass along a publishing opportunity for any aspiring science fiction writers out there.
Established in 1930, Analog Science Fiction and Fact is a bimonthly magazine of science fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. It is published by Dell Magazines, which also publishes genre magazines Asimov’s Science Fiction, Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, and Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine.
In the words of the editor’s:
“We publish science fiction stories in which some aspect of future science or technology is so integral to the plot that, if that aspect were removed, the story would collapse.”
Analog is currently accepting submissions from and working with new writers!
They are looking for short stories up to 20,000 words, serials of 40,000 to 80,000 words, and fact articles of around 4,000 words in length. They are looking for poetry submissions as well! They pay 8¢ to 10¢ per word for fiction, 6¢ per word for serials, 9¢ per word for fact articles, and $1 per line for poetry.
How to Submit:
You can check out Analog’s Writer’s Guideline’s here for more information on how to submit. The editors prefer potential writers to submit online via their electronic submission system. You can also send your submission via post to Dell Magazines, Trevor Quachri, editor, 44 Wall Street, Suite 904, New York NY 10005-2401.
Good luck to anyone who decides to submit!
Until next time!
