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Apparition Lit is seeking original, unpublished speculative fiction that meet our quarterly theme.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.
Issue 8: Euphoria is now available for purchase!
We are currently CLOSED to submissions. We will be open for poetry and short story (1,000 – 5,000 words) submissions November 15-30 for Issue 9: Experimentation, which will be published January 2020.
Our flash fiction contest is OPEN November 1-15th for our monthly Flash Fiction Challenge. Your stories must be 1,000 words or under (hard limit) that pass or discuss Raleigh Becket Test, which contains a central male character whose narrative needs the development of a female character but is precluded from being sexually or romantically involved with the character.
Before you submit your work, please check out our submission guidelines for all the details.
