Contact/Submissions

General submissions are closed for the year. We are always open for submissions in all categories. Email us at contact@apocalypse-confidential.com with a pitch or draft (please send as a Word or Google doc for text submissions; jpg/png for Postcard submissions), any images you’d like included, how you’d like to be credited, a short bio in third person, and any links for promotion (blog, portfolio, etc.). Include your Twitter handle if you wish to be tagged when we shill your work.

Simultaneous submissions are permitted, except for special presentations, though please let us know if your submission is accepted elsewhere. Reprints and excerpts are permitted as well, though we prefer to publish original work.

We are unable to pay for submissions at this time, but writers retain full ownership of their work. We have no word limit, but keep in mind that we’re an online magazine, not a publisher (yet) so save your novella for next time. Most published fiction submissions fall within the 4k-6k word count. For poetry, please limit submissions to no more than 5 pages.

Currently we don’t have the manpower to copyedit/proofread submissions (beyond running spellcheck and making minor tweaks before publication) so please only submit polished drafts. We look forward to hearing from you.

We are OPEN for submissions for our BLUE CHRISTMAS special–deadline: December 9–and our …LOVE special, with a February 3 deadline.
