Collective Fallout

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Collective Fallout accepts the following submissions:

Short Story / Flash Fiction / Novelette
Graphic Novel / Comic Book pages
Art / Photography (for covers)

If you have produced something which does not fit into one of these categories, but is otherwise queer and speculative (appropriate to the theme of the upcoming issue, if any), feel free to submit using the "Other" category. While we cannot guarantee that alternate forms will be accepted, we will consider the work if it will fit into the magazine. Collective Fallout does not accept non-fiction articles, interviews, or reviews for its print magazine.

Collective Fallout does not consider work that has been published elsewhere (online or in print). We may consider work previously published on the writer’s PERSONAL blog or site with limited readership, provided it has shown revision since initial posting. Please include the URL with the submission; Collective Fallout reserves the right to turn down any submission that has been published on personal blogs and websites.

All literary submissions must be written primarily English. Translations of other authors’ work are not accepted—original work only.

We will not accept submissions of blatant pornography. We welcome submissions that make use of subtlety and innuendo; our primary focus remains the genres listed above. We will not accept fan-fiction or “slash.”

The queer focus of this magazine is on the Art, not the Artist. So long as the work is queer (and speculative), the sexual orientation and/or identity of the artist is irrelevant. Likewise, if the work is not queer, the sexual orientation and/or identity of the artist is equally irrelevant.

Simultaneous submissions accepted; please keep us informed if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Collective Fallout acquires First North American Serial Rights. Upon publication, all rights return to the creators. Excerpts published online are done so with the creator’s permission.

Contributors will receive one digital copy of the magazine. Print copies must be purchased.

Contributors are welcome to submit again upon publication.
