The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Wizards in Space Magazine - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

Note: Remove name from manuscript to facilitate anonymous judging.

We’re particularly interested in themes of space and place, things that change and things that don’t, the spots we share and the ones we keep to ourselves. Where do you go when you need peace? Where do you go when you need to be loud? What moments and what places do you find yourself returning to over and over again? What brings you back to yourself and what lets you rise above the things that try to bring you down? We invite you to experiment and invent, follow and break the rules as you see fit. Share with us your political and your personal, your faith, identity, love and loss, truths and dreams. Even if you are not sure your work fits, we want to hear from you.
