Soft Star Magazine - Fiction (Go to Poetry)



Description
All writing submissions should align with Soft Star’s core themes of curiosity, discovery, and optimism for the future.

For short fiction submissions, we especially love to see science fiction and speculative fiction stories.

Soft science fiction is a subgenre of sci-fi that focuses heavily on human themes. Rather than the technical explanations and scientific accuracy that are so important in hard science fiction, soft sci fi prioritizes human emotions, relationships, and philosophical questions. At Soft Star, we care a lot about human potential, as well as the inherent magic of things that are hard to explain, concepts that align well with the soft science fiction genre.
