MetaStellar is always open to submissions.

Our editorial team would be happy to hear from you. Below is an overview for paid and unpaid submissions.

Paid Submissions.

MetaStellar Magazine has two cycles for paid submissions each year, where we pay 8 cents a word for flash fiction. Unfortunately, we cannot pay for submissions outside these two cycles.

To keep up with our paid submissions windows, you can subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Twitter

If you are interested in submitting, please see our flash fiction guidelines.

Year-round Submissions.

MetaStellar editors welcome unpaid submissions and pitches all year round — in the form of reviews, essays, excerpts, and reprints — and typically respond in a week.

If your piece is accepted for publication, we will send you a contract giving us non-exclusive rights to edit and publish it, edits subject to your approval. 

If you’re still interested, you can review guidelines and submit your work at the below links.
