Tor.com welcomes original speculative fiction short stories and poetry. We define “speculative fiction” broadly, including SF, fantasy, horror, alternate history, and related genres. We’re particularly interested in stories under 12,000 words, and may even be slightly more likely to take a chance on shorter stories from new writers. We pay 25 cents a word for the first 5,000 words, 15 cents a word for the next 5,000, and 10 cents a word after that.
Criminal Element welcomes submissions of original short crime and mystery stories in all subgenres. We are not interested in “true crime” or other non-fiction material. We are interested in stories between 6,000 and 15,000 words. Simultaneous submissions are allowed.
Original short stories acquired for this program are edited by both in-house editors and freelance editors who are experts in the genre. We pay $1,000 against a 25% royalty. (The royalty enters the picture with respect to downloadable versions of the work.) Although we will consider edge cases, “original” means original–not previously published.
