Assemble Artifacts Magazine
Assemble Media

Note: the terms of this publication are much different than most fiction publications in that they are aiming to produce films from the work, and are intended to protect those making film adaptations from frivolous lawsuits. Their terms are pretty similar to common film contracts, which makes sense since they are aiming to work in film. It is always good to examine contracts closely, and consider asking a subject matter expert (such as a lawyer) to examine the terms before signing anything.

Note: will not respond in the case of rejection; assume rejection after 3 months.

Assemble Artifacts is looking for stories of wonder and suspense.
