Established in 2012, we are an indie press with the goal of providing high-quality, low-cost, highly accessible electronic and print books for anyone interested in science, mathematics, and the lives of scientists. We are currently focusing on science fiction and "science in fiction," but will eventually bring you a wide range of quality non-fiction and textbooks.

Please submit a detailed cover letter describing yourself and your project, along with approximately 50 pages of the completed manuscript (fiction) or one chapter plus an outline (non-fiction). Electronic submissions only. Please no phone calls or snail mail.

Visitants pop up throughout literature as ghosts, as fits of madness, and as omens. In nature, a visitant takes on a different meaning: a migratory bird that has come to a place temporarily; a cicada that rises from the soil every 17 years. Here at Visitant, we have created a space where you and your temporary visitors—your stories, your art—might rest, grow stronger, and be shared. Send us your work! https://visitantlit.com/contact

We are accepting submissions of flash fiction, serialized fiction, non-fiction essays, multimedia essays, poetry, art, and interviews. Submissions should be limited to 1,500 words. If you are interested in submitting a longer piece, we may still be able to publish it in serialized format (please see this example: https://visitantlit.com/2016/06/21/a-coven-in-essex-county-part-1). Please send all submissions to visitantlit AT gmail DOT com. Please attach your submission as a Word document and include a short biographical statement in the body of your email.

We publish Home Tips on most weeks, and occasional related items on our secondary blog.
Circulation: 
1,000 to 2,500

We accept essays of 250 words or less, each focused on one task or series of related tasks as executed by people we’ve lost to death but still clearly see living. Each of these micro-essays can be thought of as an entry into a book on living well, or efficiently, or at the very least with particular methods.

1. Does your story include a home tip? We focus on giving a home tip that someone could really try. How would this essay make someone's home better, or cause someone to reflect on the nature of home? 2. Is it written for the reader to read, or still feels like it is written for the writer to write? This is one reason we feel that conveying a home tip is important. It puts you, the writer, in the reader's shoes. 3. Does it let the dead speak? We welcome your presence and perspective in the essay. But the most important person here is the one you lost, and we'd like to meet that person through their voice and presence, how they peeled eggs or folded clothes or played records. Show us what they did, and how they did it.

We obey no genre and take anything from limericks to fantasy to genres yet invented. Our key desires are originality, accessibility and quality. We like work with a point, something to say or some sort of inner majic that gives greater meaning to the pretty words and thrilling plots. That said, we're not really sure what we’re looking for until we've seen it, so give us a try. Published online monthly, Red Fez Publications features poetry and prose outside of the narrow, academic stream. Red Fez is committed to bringing light to underground and under-recognized writers and writing.

Please do NOT send snail mail submissions. Use the submission form on the website. Read the guidelines and past issues to get a feel for what we like.

We are actively looking for unique modes of storytelling that fall outside conventional boundaries while still maintaining the core essence of "story." We accept stories in all forms and formats, especially those we haven't thought of yet.

We look for a story to tell us something universal about the human condition. Just because our theme is "recovery" doesn't mean that all of what we publish is about successful recovery. Often it's not the recovery story that says the most about the process of recovering. We like work that shows heart and depth of character.

I look for interesting language. Word plays, lyricism, music, these are all very important to me. And bear in mind that when I say "music," that doesn't mean only classical. Rock and roll, punk, hip-hop--these are music, too. A story can be hard-hitting and gritty and still have music to the words.

We especially like stories, poems, and non-fiction pieces that deal with the spiritual, progressive, regenerative, and transformative elements of life. We’re also highly drawn to works about religion, Israel/Palestine, the Mideast conflicts, and social justice. Please keep in mind that ours is a global, multi-faith readership, and while we appreciate non-English expressions, the language needs to be broadly accessible.

Works must be under 3,000 words to be published in the print magazine. While we have no set lengths for web pieces, works over 5000 words will have to be especially impressive to warrant publication. Novel excerpts are fine provided that they can stand alone. All works will be considered for both the print edition and online. We also welcome simultaneous submissions provided we’re notified in the cover letter and informed immediately if the work is accepted elsewhere. We do not accept previously published work, and we require that all submissions be made through our online system. Please submit only one story at a time and no more than three per year.
