Original fantasy and dark fantasy poems. All types of fantasy and dark fantasy are welcome. We prefer shorter form poems with literary sensibilities which are evocative, emotionally resonant, and/or visually vibrant—in other words, poems which are viscerally impactful, and/or meaningful in some way. At the same time, we will not limit submissions to these parameters.


Payment: $40-600

We welcome the submission of translations of work from other languages. Fiction, poetry, and nonfiction that has never before been published in the English language would be considered “original.”

How to submit

  • Processs


  • Cover letter

    Your cover letter may include your name and other identifying elements. It should contain the length of your story, your publishing history, and any other relevant information (e.g, if you send us a fantasy story about the Byzantine empire and your doctoral dissertation was on Byzantine empire politics, mention that). If you don’t have credentials to cite, don’t worry! We care about your story, not your resume. If you’re not sure what should go in your cover letter, this article on cover letters might help.

  • Eligibility

    No specific eligibility requirements

  • Formatting

    Please submit your manuscript in double-spaced Times New Roman or Courier font. Please remember to NOT include any identifying information on your manuscript apart from the story title. Your manuscript must be in either .RTF, .DOC, or .DOCX format. Please submit poems in one document.

  • Author's rights

    Please see our contract templates, which are available on Moksha.

  • Additional info

    We strongly recommend reading some of the work in the magazine before submitting. Do not submit more than one set of poems at a time, more than one piece of flash fiction at a time, or more than one story at a time. You may, however, submit a single entry in each category at the same time: you can submit one batch of poems, one flash fiction piece, and one short story all at the same (or overlapping) time, and each category will be considered a separate submission. Sexual themes and stories with strong sexual content are acceptable, but Fantasy is not a market for erotica. Fantasy is not a market for media-based fiction (e.g., stories set in the A Game of Thrones or Buffy the Vampire Slayer universes, etc.), or any kind of fan fiction.
