Currently Open to Submissions

The following submission types are temporarily closed:


Please submit up to 5 poems at a time in a single document. Title the submission however best suits you, but we recommend using the title of the first poem in the group like this "First Poem and other poems." In the recent past, we have preferred short and middle-length poems up to about 80 lines. The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction has been publishing poetry since the second issue of the magazine, but we do not publish a lot of poetry so expect us to be highly selective. As with the fiction we publish, the speculative element -- fantasy, science fiction, horror, etc. -- may be slight but it must be present and essential to the poem.
