Wicked Words Quarterly is looking for previously unpublished works of science fiction, fantasy or horror with a twist.

Each quarterly magazine will include several pieces of flash fiction of any length up to 750 words. It will also include several short stories of between 1,000 and 7,500 words, and in the Winter edition it will include a Novella of between 7,500 and 15,000 words.

All writing will be paid at $0.01 per word up to a maximum of $150, all payments will be made by PayPal, this will be paid in the quarter of first publication. Then if the issue your story is included in makes a net profit 50% of this net profit will be shared between the contributors on a per word basis.

I aim to reply to your submissions as soon as possible, but it is most likely that the reply to your submission will be made in the month that is closed for submissions for that issue.

Full details of terms and conditions please see the FAQ, I will assume that when you send a submission you have read these and agree to them.

To submit by email please send your story as an attached RTF or Word document to submissions@wickedwords.co.uk and include your name, address, contact details, synopsis of the story and a short biography that will be included on the website and in the e-zine to accompany your story (your contact details will only be included if you wish them to).

I’ve had to remove the submission form as it was causing major problems with formatting. I will be looking into other ways for you to submit your work but for now please send me an email with your work attached as a .rtf or .doc file.
