The goal of FunnyinFiveHundred.com is simple. Write a funny short story or monologue in five hundred words or less. 

For a story submission, pick a funny plot, and run with it. Our favorites will make our podcast.

For a monologue submission, we're looking for stand-up comedy routines. We use these to create a fun video.

indicia seeks to showcase a dynamic collage of passionate and profound voices hungry to produce art and write primarily in the English language. indicia enjoys feeling out the lengths to which language can be stretched, whether to convey a feeling, an experience, a humorous observation, a dire lesson, or whatever else a literary spirit needs to say.

Some sense of the editorial philosophy behind Courtship can be gained by reading the “Editor’s Desk” page.  We are interested in publishing “unknowns,” as well as well-established writers.  A writer who has published absolutely nothing will be read the same way as a prize-winning “name” writer.   Work that does something not seen before or, more to the point, makes us see differently — call it avant-garde, experimental, or what you like — is always welcome.

We're focused on showcasing diverse writers because we want to give a platform for stories told from new perspectives, particularly if they are told by marginalized voices. We're not concerned with credentials in terms of prior publications or degrees. Instead, we look for quality writing that stands out, whether it's from a seasoned author or emerging writer.

We recommend reading stories that we have already published to get a feel for the type of narratives we prefer. We also really appreciate crisp, well-revised manuscripts. Other than that, the best way to impress us is by submitting a unique story that leaves a lasting impression.

Empyreome (pronounced Em-peer-ee-ohm) is a quarterly online magazine dedicated to publishing high quality speculative fiction. The word Empyreome is derived from the Greek empyrean (of or relating to the heavens) and the suffix -ome (denoting parts having a specified nature, as in 'genome'). As such, our goal is threefold: 1) To publish fascinating stories that are out of this world! 2) To publish stories that will encourage, enlighten, and inspire 3) To be a publication where authors will be proud to have their work published

Empyreome is seeking original works of speculative short fiction with up to 10,000 words (<7,000 preferred). Stories with 1,000 words or fewer will be considered for our Weekly Flash series. We like stories in which interesting people do interesting things and make interesting things happen. We do not like stories in which flat characters are merely acted upon by forces beyond their control, and nothing interesting happens. If your story includes profanity, sexual situations, or violence, these elements should be essential to the story. Please do not send stories that glorify violence, use profanity without purpose, or depict graphic sexual scenes. In general, if the stories in Empyreome were films rated by the MPAA, they would receive a rating of PG-13 or younger.
