At Astrolabe, we’re looking for work about how we seek out, discover, and grasp onto connection. Into the woods. Across a line. Beneath the ocean. Along a seam. Into the branches of an alternate present or the crevasse of an alternate future. Across the rifts between one another.
And then, once we find one other, the myths we make.
We’re excited to see as many interpretations of this broad theme as there are stars in the night sky.
We’re open to work of all genres, with a particular fondness for anything that moves beyond realism in form or content or spirit.
Read the contract terms carefully for non-standard terms that may affect an author keeping control of their own work, such as transfer of copyright, lack of time-based reversion of rights clause, or editing pieces without the authors approval.
