Welcome to

Apparition Literary Magazine

Apparition Lit is seeking original, unpublished speculative fiction that meet our quarterly theme. Speculative fiction is weird, almost unclassifiable. It’s fantasy, sci-fi, horror, and literary. We want it all. Send us your strange, misshapen stories.

We’re increasing our 2019 pay rate for short stories to $0.03 per word and poetry to $15 flat rate. We had incredible contributions from donors and subscribers and we thank you for your support in 2018, into 2019, and beyond. Thank you to every who donated time, money, or just read one of our stories. 

We are currently OPEN for poetry and short story (1,000 – 5,000 words) submissions for Issue 5: Resistance, publishing January 2019.

Before you submit your work, please check out our submission guidelines for all the details.

Our 2018 issues, Issue 1: Apparition,  Issue 2: Delusion, Issue 3: Vision, and Issue 4: Diversion are currently available for purchase
