Fiction Submissions 

We are accepting fiction submissions from readers, in the genres of short stories, flash fiction, and poetry. There is no submission fee. Unfortunately we are not able to compensate writers at this time, though this is one of our goals in the future. Works accepted for publication will be featured on the Pendora website. Below you can find a few guidelines for submitters. We look forward to reading your works!

 

FICTION Guidelines

There are no themes on any of the genres; you are free to write about any topic you want.

There are no restrictions regarding the lengths of poems and short stories, but flash fiction pieces should be no more than 500 words.

Submit your Short Stories, Flash Fiction, and Poems via email to submissions(at)pendoramagazine.com.

Write in the subject field the genre of your work (e.g. "Fiction Submission: Short Story"), and add your piece as an attachment (.docx, .doc, NOT .pdf).

The top of the document should include your name, email, and the title of your work.

Include in the body of the email details (like name, mini bio, perhaps where people can find you on social media) that we can feature on the website, along with your work.

Our editors offer detailed in-text feedback if a submission is not accepted for publication. Please mention in the body of the email if you would like to receive feedback.

We will let you know if your work is accepted for publication within 2 weeks from the date of submission.

If your work is accepted, it will be published the following month.

Rights: We require exclusive electronic rights to all accepted works for two months after publication on our website and non-exclusive rights indefinitely so we may include them in future online anthologies.

This submission period is currently OPEN.


Non Fiction

We would love to publish your thought pieces, essays, or anything non fiction that relates to literature, film, the arts in general, or other cultural topics that go with the style of our magazine. You can check out the posts on our Articles and Essays pages to get an idea of what we usually publish on our magazine.

The target wordcount is 800-1000 for our Articles posts, and between 1300 and 1500 words for Essays. Topics for the Articles can range from your reading/watching experiences of a particular book/film/show, opinion pieces, or anything else that interest you in these domains. We suggest you have a careful look at the articles we are publishing to see if your piece fits within our magazine. The Essays can take on any of the same topics, but with a more in-depth look into them, backing your arguments with research.

Submit your non fiction pieces via email to submissions(at)pendoramagazine.com.

Write in the subject field the genre (opinion piece, article, essay, etc.), and add your piece as an attachment (.docx, .doc, NOT .pdf).

Include in the body of the email details (like name, mini bio, perhaps where people can find you on social media) that we can feature on the website, along with your work.
