Future Affairs Administration

Note: This market takes submissions in English or Chinese, but only publishes in Chinese. This can be very good for writers because if you sell First Chinese Publication Rights it doesn't use your First English Publication Rights and vice versa.

We are primarily a science fiction market, but will accept some fantasy, especially if award-winning. Please submit your work in standard manuscript format. Short fiction will be either in Chinese or translated into Chinese, and published on social media such as Weibo, WeChat, and the FAA website.

Some political references are not publishable in China other than as a metaphor. We appreciate your understanding. Stories can include sexuality, profanity, and violence, although extensive amounts of any of these things will not necessarily be of interest to us. We are looking for the stories of the future, the interesting stories that tell us something new about ourselves or our potential. We like stories with new and innovative approaches, perhaps projecting the future.We like stories that challenge our perceptions, and stories with interesting authorial style.

DO NOT SUBMIT! This market is temporarily closed.
