Guidelines and Submission Form.

We are interested in reviews covering any form of entertainment — movies, literature, videogames, etc — as long as it is speculative fiction. Ergo, entertainment containing “speculative fiction elements” doesn’t usually cut it. We prefer a word count between 500 and 800 words, but also accept longer pieces if you are writing a listicle, such as “Ten Best Fantasy Novels Involving Dogs.”

MetaStellar publishes original and previously published reviews for free. We are unable to pay for reviews. See our overview.

If you have an idea brewing for an original review, please send your pitches to [email protected], with the subject line “Review/Essay Pitch,” along with a sample of your writing. 

For review-related questions, please email [email protected].

By submitting your work below, you affirm that you are the original writer of the text, and that you have rights to any images included. 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. You will receive a byline, an author bio at the bottom of each of your pieces, and a spot on our contributors list. You can also include all of your platform links.

  • Please put name of the book, film, or show you're reviewing in the title, or the title of your list article, such as, "Best 10 dogs in fantasy novels."
  • Please write a summary, tag line or blurb about your submission, 50 words or less.
  • Please include links to the show or movie home page, to YouTube trailers, or to the Amazon book page,
  • Please submit a one or two-sentence biography. Feel free to include links to your Amazon book page, author website, or social media pages.
