Augur - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

We’re looking for dreamy realist pieces, literary speculative works, and all forms magical realism or slipstream work. We accept YA and adult pieces, and possibly children’s as well (more likely for comics than otherwise). Our perfect submission defies categorization—pieces that could be “too speculative” for canlit magazines or “not speculative enough” for speculative magazines. That said, we all love rich realism, high fantasy, or science fiction, so if you’re wondering if you’re a fit but think you match our tone, give us a try. We recommend checking out our preview issue, free online, to see what we’ve published before.
