Story Submissions

IZ Digital is currently open to unsolicited submissions of science fiction and fantasy stories up to a maximum of 7,000 words.

We are looking for original, unpublished stories. Please do not query about reprints.

We accept simultaneous submissions.

Payment is (EUR) 1.5¢ per word (one and one-half euro cents).

Stories should be in standard manuscript format (double spaced, good margins, contact email, approximate word count, page numbers) and saved as a Word document. Email your submission as an attachment to: submissions [at] interzone [dot] digital

You don’t need to provide a postal address on your manuscript.

Don’t spend too long on a cover letter: just introduce yourself and tell us of any relevant credits you have.

Do not be discouraged by a form rejection. It still means what it says: try us with something new.

If your story has been rejected for the print edition of Interzone, don’t submit to IZ Digital – we will already have considered that option.

Submission guidelines for the print edition of Interzone can be found here.

We aim to respond to submissions within 5 weeks. If you have not heard anything within this time, email submissions [at] interzone [dot] digital with ‘follow-up’ and the title of your original submission in the subject line.

We look forward to reading your work.
