What We Want:
Kasma Magazine is CLOSED for submissions (I've accepted too many awesome stories and need to publish them before I start reading again).
I prefer short science fiction between 1000 and 5000 words in length, though I'll consider stories that are longer, and in very rare cases, shorter.
The type of stories I enjoy the most usually come as a surprise (I think I know what is happening, but the underlying reality is revealed to me as I read on). That said, I've accepted many stories that don't fit this model. Sometimes I'm introduced to a new story structure-- a style of writing I've not seen before (this is great too!). Sometimes the story I like reminds me of another story, but it introduces a slightly different spin on it. Other times, the story introduces such interesting and original ideas that structure and style don't seem to matter as much.
What We Pay:
Kasma Magazine pays a flat rate of $25 dollars per story. Payments are made via Paypal only, and in Canadian dollars.
If you wish to submit work to Kasma Magazine, please send fiction to firstname.lastname@example.org. Put SUBMISSION in subject line (for the spam filter). Thank you!
Rights We Ask For:
Upon having your work accepted by Kasma, you are able to and are automatically giving me non-exclusive electronic publishing rights, or reprint rights if applicable, to publish your story in Kasma Magazine. I do not own your story. You are free to publish and sell it elsewhere, as long as whatever publication you sell it to understands that the rights you are giving them are non-exclusive. After a period of one year, all rights revert back to you and you may, if you wish, ask me to remove your story from our catalog. I hope that you won't however, as I would like to include your story in Kasma's archive of great, short science fiction.
