Submission Guidelines

We here at Fiction Planet are looking for the most fantastical, the most mystifying and the most horrific stories out there. If you think you have something special to share with out readers, we want to know about it.

We like anything that’s speculative, interesting and/or entertaining. We accept parts of novels, short stories and flash fiction. Heck, we’ll even take a poem if it strikes us. The breadth of stuff we are likely to accept is so wide it’s easier to list the stuff we don’t like.

Fiction Planet does not accept reviews, essays or fanfiction at this time. We’re also not huge fans of works involving sparkly vampires, or gratuitous pop culture references. Please don’t send us anything less than a final draft.

How to Submit

If you’d like to be added as a writer, please send an email with your Medium username to

We only accept drafts, so please submit stories that haven’t been published on Medium yet.

Our editors will correct minor errors in punctuation and spelling, but will always contact our writers about any major changes that may need to be made prior to publication. Content and message are always left to the writer’s discretion.

Like what you read? Give D.S. Ritter a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
