For those submitting fiction pieces, please use the industry-standard formatting as seen on William Shunn's Official Website.
For those submitting artwork/photography, please ensure your pictures are print-quality. That means images/artwork need to be 300 dpi.
Make sure you include a readable (and professional) cover letter, introducing yourself, your submission(s), and your experiences. The cover letter should include contact information, including a mailing address. This information will be used to send your contributor copies if you are accepted for publication.
Offer a fifty-word biography in third-person. Keep it short and engaging.
We are looking for all kinds of speculative fiction with literary twists! That means we are looking for fiction with a “What if?” at its center, along with realistic characters, or at least characters we can like and even love.
We publish short-form fiction with lengths between 500 and 20,000 words.
All published short-form writing is published on Free Radicals' Website and within the magazine's print and eBook/PDF form. The print and eBook/PDF forms are published four times per year.
We are also looking for artwork/photography that is print-/eBook-ready. Art must be centered on speculative (fiction) themes.
If you have any questions about submitting to Free Radicals, please reach out to the Editor-in-Chief, G. Michael Rapp, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you submit, please make sure you've read our Submissions page before submitting anything to us.
