Good news everyone
We are back. We know you missed us.
We are ready and raring to get another volume of our speculative flash fiction pod-zine going. One volume = 6 episodes of two stories each, published every 14 days. As
And the next good news is that this time around, we have raised funds and would like to offer a small sum to our authors.
We publish fiction that is short - 800 words is the hard upper limit, and 300 words is the sweet spot. We will be paying a flat 500 Rupees for each story that we publish. We also publish speculative art, and we will pay for it at 500 rupees per piece.
As always we will prioritize publishing South-Asia based authors (healthy parochialism perhaps?) and first time or new authors. Speculative fiction is broad enough to encompass anything from elves and fairies to talking cockroaches and sentient planets, and we love all of them.
So, break out your stationary and write us some fantastical tales of wonder and mystery and grief and horror and all the other emotions from the poster on my therapist's wall (talking cockroaches would be preferred to therapists’ walls, though)
Stories can be submitted here and art can be emailed to unseenfic[at]gmail.com. You can find us on twitter at @unseenfic.
Please consider sharing this with whoever you think needs to hear this.
Suggestions, criticism, critters and ideas, all are welcome.
