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Apparition Lit is seeking original, unpublished speculative fiction that meet our quarterly theme.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.

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

We are currently CLOSED for poetry and short story (1,000 – 5,000 words) submissions. Our next reading period will be November 15-30 for Issue 5: Resistance, publishing January 2019.

Our Flash Fiction Contest is CLOSED but will open again between November 1-15, with the theme is “Security”. The winning October story, for the theme is “You can see the bone”, will be published on October 25th.

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