Otis Nebula publishes a semi-annual digital zine for which we accept submissions year round. From time to time, we also put out paper and ink books, as well as ebooks. Currently we are only accepting submissions to the zine. Please do take a gander at what it is we do here before sending us your work. All of our past issues are available for free online. Our tastes are nebulous but if you don’t like what you encounter here, we’re probably not the place for you. We publish mostly poetry, but will also give shelter to fiction, creative non-fiction, reviews, interviews, audio, video, photographs, music, and any and all hybrid forms.

Submissions should be previously unpublished. Include a short, third person bio. In the subject field of your message type your full NAME and GENRE. You may place your work in the body of the email or send 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 between a few days and a few months. Simultaneous submissions are of course fine, just let us know if your work is accepted elsewhere by dropping us a line.

Send submissions to:

otis [at] otisnebula [dot] com

We do enjoy receiving actual mail and will often respond to it more quickly than the digital sort. You may paper submissions or review copies to:

PO Box 571
Kula, HI 96790

Don’t forget to include an SASE.

We don’t enjoy sending out rejections and rarely get around to it, so if you haven’t heard from us and feel you should have, please let us know and we’ll give you a friendly reply (eventually). 

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!
