Interzone is open to submissions of fantastika (including horror) of between 2,000 and 17,500 words.

(If you are not sure about what is included under the umbrella of fantastika, check out the entry on The Encyclopedia of Science Fiction.)

We are looking for original, unpublished stories. Please do not query about reprints.

It is strongly recommended that you study the magazine before submitting.

We accept simultaneous submissions.

We do not accept multiple submissions.

If you receive a rejection from us, please wait three weeks before submitting again.

Payment is (EUR) 1.5¢ per word (one and one-half euro cents).

Stories should be in standard manuscript format (double spaced, good margins, contact email, approximate word count, page numbers) and saved as a Word document. Email your submission as an attachment to: submissions [at] interzone [dot] press

You don’t need to provide a postal address on your manuscript.

Don’t spend too long on a cover letter: just introduce yourself and tell us of any relevant credits you have.

Do not be discouraged by a form rejection. It still means what it says: try us with something new.

If your story has been rejected for IZ Digital, don’t submit to Interzone—we will already have considered that option.

Please query submissions [at] interzone [dot] press if you have any questions.
