SFF Submissions

Del Sol Review is currently looking for poetry and quality speculative short fiction in all its forms (SF, fantasy, urban, steampunk, etc.) for publication. Fiction submissions must be formatted in a standard manner and from 500 to 6000 words in length. We also accept excerpts from novels-in-progress up to 6000 words (please include a one page synopsis with novel excerpt). Also, please include a short bio (150 words max) we can place on the website. Submissions, conjecture and questions to:

Richard - sffeditor ( at ) richardhacker.com

Del Sol Review obtains exclusive electronic rights for six months following publication and non-exclusive rights after six months. Stories and poems must be previously unpublished and thoroughly proofed. By contributing, you affirm that you have read and agree with the submission guidelines on this page. We ask that subsequent publication of the same story, whether print or electronic, acknowledge first publication in DSR.

Please don't send us the kind of trope-heavy material that Clarkesworld, for example, would reject out of hand. Zombies, vampires, dragons, among other things are avoided by us unless you have a brand new spin on the subject. Overall, we're looking for sharp narrative, strong hooks, and unpredictable storyline progression. Also, please write a great first line!

All works submitted should reside in the body of the email, or attached as an .rtf file (Rich Text Format). If necessary, italics may be indicated by use of the following characters: [i]...[/i].

Thank you.
