Otis Nebula publishes a digital zine for which we accept submissions year round. We’ve also been known to put out paper and ink books, as well as ebooks, but are not reading manuscripts at this time.

We are now accepting submissions for our Summer 2019 issue.

We’re looking for incandescent, substantial writing that operates on its own terms. We’re not fans of the academic or intentionally obtuse. Currently, we’re interested in writers who are working with perspectives other than those into which they were born. We believe “the self” isn’t fixed but always in flux, and that the freedom to explore and express this aspect of the human experience is at the core of art in general and literature specifically. 


Please do take a gander at what it is we do here before submitting. All of our past issues are available for free online. If you feel strongly that your work might resonate, send us your poetry, fiction, creative non-fiction, reviews, interviews, audio, video, photographs, music, or any and all hybrid forms. 

Submissions should be previously unpublished and include a short, third person biography. (We reserve the right to edit bios in the interests of brevity and style.) In the subject field of your message, please type your full NAME and GENRE. You may place your work in the body of the email or as an attachment. Please don’t send more than six poems or flash pieces. As for longer prose pieces, those under 5000 words are preferred, but we’ll try anything once. Response time varies from a few days to several months. Feel free to query after six weeks if you haven’t heard back from us. Simultaneous submissions are fine, but please let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere by dropping us a line, preferably in the original thread you used to submit.

Don’t forget to include an SASE.

Otis Nebula reserves First North American Serial Rights with all rights reverting to the author upon publication. At this time, we are not a paying market. We are a machine that runs on volunteer labor and love. What we can offer is a beautiful home for your work that readers from around the world will have access to for as long as there’s electricity.

We look forward to seeing what you’ve been up to!
