About Us

MetaStellar is an online publication focusing on horror, fantasy and science fiction, launched in September 2020, founded by a dozen speculative fiction writers, editors and artists from around the world.

Since our launch in September 2020, we’ve had 50,000 page views from more than 16,000 unique visitors and published over 350 pieces (out of more than 1,000 submissions) by more than 170 writers. We are accredited as a Google News publisher.

We pay for original speculative fiction, at a rate of 8 cents a word. We also have non-paying publishing opportunities for reprints, essays, how-to articles and reviews.
