Wizards in Space: Now Seeking Submissions

Wizards in Space aims to create “Spaces made for people to share their magic.” They showcase a wide range of poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction by both emerging and established authors. They like writing that’s heartfelt, whimsical, and connective, and they feature underrepresented voices as often as possible. To get a sense of what they publish, you can read selections from the journal online.

Wizards in Space has been published in print biannually since 2016. Each issue features writing from around 40 contributors. The journal is also available as a paid digital download, and selections from each edition are available online for free.

All authors published in Wizards in Space are paid: $40 per original poem, $20 per reprinted poem. And $0.04 per word for original prose, $0.02 per word for reprinted prose. All staff members at the journal are also paid.

Each issue of Wizards in Space is themed. The theme of their upcoming issue is empowerment: “What does it mean to be empowered, to revel in your own strength? How do you take the abundance of yourself and share it freely with others?” They’re accepting submissions on this theme now through August 1. You can also read the editors’ wish list for the upcoming issue here.

Poets may submit up to four single-page poems, 40 lines or fewer each. Authors of fiction and creative nonfiction may submit up to 3,500 words. Wizards in Space reads submissions blind.
