We believe that publishing speculative fiction isn’t just printing words on the page — it’s the act of weaving brand new worlds. We believe in great storytelling. We believe in challenging genre boundaries and engaging the fundamental human drive to tell stories that resonate emotionally. The way we do this is by partnering with great writers to craft and edit the best fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction stories possible. By creating beautiful, well designed paperbacks and ebooks. By growing their publicity. And by fostering a family of authors and editors excited to work with us.

Check our anthology guidelines for short fiction opportunities.

Wild Age Press is an independent literary publisher with a mission to publish work with an edge to it, work that you might find hitchhiking on a roadside, work that doesn’t give a damn about boundaries or borders or genre. We don’t care about aesthetics nearly as much as substance. We know that sometimes ugly things cannot and should not be made beautiful.

Please do not send us pretentious things. Be honest and open about your work. Don't try to show off. Try to make a connection with us.
