Alien Magazine is open for all types of fiction, nonfiction, poetry, and visual art submissions starting September 1st. We are looking for work that is out of this world, work that goes where no one has gone before. 

We’re currently accepting submissions for our second issue, which will be published online in February 2020.

*We are not a science fiction magazine, though we are open to SF work. By "Alien" we mean "outsider" or anything that exists outside the societal norm*

*The first 150 submissions each month are free. After that submitters are charged a small fee that goes toward the upkeep of the website and Submittable account*

Specific Guidelines:

  • Please wait until you receive a response for your submission before submitting again. You are free to submit multiple times, but only one at a time
  • Only submit previously unpublished work
  • Include a cover letter in the appropriate place on Submittable. Please keep this brief: a 100 word or less bio 
  • We accept simultaneous submissions, but let us know as soon as it’s accepted elsewhere
  • Submit all written work as a .doc or .docx file and all visual work as a JPEG or PNG file
  • Have standard formatting: put your page number and last name somewhere on each page. If the submission is prose, please double-space. Use TNR font, or similar 

*Alien Magazine reserves the right to reject your work unread if these basic guidelines aren’t followed. 


All proceeds go to the upkeep of our website and the daily operations of our publication.
