The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Friends Journal: Quaker Speculative Fiction Special Issue
Friends Journal




Description
Note: remove name from manuscript.

We are using “Speculative Fiction” in a broad sense, to describe stories from a range of genres where the story turns on elements that are not observably true of the world we live in: science fiction, fantasy, and alternate history, as well as horror and romance stories with fantastic or science fictional elements. Speculative fiction asks, “how would the world and the way we live in it be different if X were true?” and examines that question using fiction as a lens.

Quaker Speculative Fiction asks, “how would the world and the way Quakers live in it be different if X were true?”


This listing is permanently closed for submissions. This may mean one of several things:
  • It was always planned to be a limited-time project, such as a one-time anthology, and the limited-time submission window has ended.
  • The publisher has stated that they are permanently closed, or on hiatus with wording that makes it sound permanent.
  • The publication website is down in a way that appears to be permanent, and we haven't been able to find a new website for them.
  • The publication website is not down, but it appears to have been inactive for more than a year.
