We’re looking for reprints of uncanny or dreamlike realist fiction, literary speculative fiction, and magical realism. Our perfect submission defies categorization—pieces that could be “too speculative” for canlit or “not speculative enough” for spec magazines (although we’re open to stories on both these sides as well).
At this time, we offer a small honorarium payment (specified in the category breakdowns) in CAD, and are working to improve them. We also accept multiple submissions (specified in the category breakdowns) and simultaneous submissions on the condition that you inform us if the piece is accepted elsewhere. Our goal is to respond to all submissions within six weeks. Please query after two months.
All submissions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line indicated in the given genre’s instructions.
If comfortable doing so, we encourage our prospective authors to self-identify with any intersectional identity they belong to in their cover letter, so we may have a better understanding of the voices we’re including in our issues. That said, we acknowledge that the current socio-political landscape does not often reward disclosure, and so we by no means expect or require this from our writers. If you do choose to disclose, Augur magazine will treat this information as confidential, and it will be used for no purpose other than helping us as we put together issues that fulfill our mission of representing intersectional voices.
