On Spec - Poetry (Go to Fiction)



Description
We like to pride ourselves in searching out the most interesting and innovative works of fiction and poetry in the genre. So what do we want?

Speculative writing of all kinds, but nothing derivative. Try to avoid what you think are trends, because by the time we’d publish them, they won’t be. Remember, you are a trendsetter, not a trend follower.
