We are now open for submissions until:
December 31, 2019

Otis Nebula publishes digital issues of incandescent, substantial work that operates on its own terms. We’re open to all genres, cross-genres, styles, and topics. Take a gander at what we tend to publish 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, visual art (especially photographs), music, or any and all hybrid forms. 

Submission Guidelines:

We accept both digital and analog submissions. All submissions should be previously unpublished and include a short, third person biography.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 the type of work you’re submitting (fiction, poetry, etc). 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.

We may or may not make editorial suggestions on the work. Response time varies from a few days to a many months. Feel free to query if you haven’t heard back from us. Simultaneous submitters, please let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere by dropping us a line, preferably in the original thread you used to submit.

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. Our readership is large: an average of around 10,000 unique visits a month from readers in 86 countries.

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