The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Little Blue Marble - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

NOTE on August 25, 2020: This publication is open only for writers of color and indigenous writers for the time being. We can't use the usual "Submission Window" format to mark this because it doesn't end on a specific date.
Note: The 2000-5000 word range is for reprints only--which is why that range is listed at the lower reprint payment rate
We publish speculative fiction up to 2000 words that examines humanity’s possible futures living with anthropogenic climate change. We prefer fiction with a hopeful outlook, but the occasional dystopia might fit too.
