Moonday Mag: Now Seeking Submissions

Moonday Mag is a new print and online publication of “fantastically strange” writing. They publish science fiction, fantasy, magical realism, and more: “We’re interested in all things wondrous, fantastic, curious, strange, otherworldly, and chilling.” They welcome all voices, and they are especially interested in showcasing emerging and underrepresented writers.

Moonday Mag plans to publish four issues each year. Their first issue is thoughtfully designed, and available in print or as a free PDF download. It includes writing from 24 contributors. The issue also contains an abundance of original, full color artwork.

Moonday Mag accepts submission year-round. Authors of prose (fiction or nonfiction) may submit up to 4,000 words. Poets may submit up to five poems, 10 pages or fewer total. Visual artists may submit up to 10 images.

Submitting authors can expect a response within three months. Authors can also check Moonday’s Instagram for the latest submission calls. Moonday Mag accepts both new and previously published writing.

Although Moonday Mag isn’t a paying publication, they do nominate authors published in the journal for the Pushcart Prize and Best of the Net.

Moonday Mag accepts submissions via email, not online or by post. They accept simultaneous submissions, and they allow (but don’t require) authors to withdraw submitted work when needed.

Moonday Mag only accepts submissions that follow the guidelines they’ve posted online. Please read these guidelines in full before submitting.
