Fantasy & Science Fiction (F&SF) - Poetry (Fiction)

Note: F&SF has been the subject of significant discussion lately that you might want to be aware of when submitting, including discussion of publishing timelines and contracts, and publisher behavior. Here's an explainer.

Note: wait 21 days between submissions.

We welcome speculative poetry, three to five poems that reflect an active engagement with science or poems that delve into the worlds of fantasy, horror, etc. Our editor is a free verse kind of reader, but excellent form and narrative poems are appreciated.
