Call for Writers: Be a Part of the Voyage

Interstellar Flight Magazine now seeking writers!

Do you love all things geek?

Are you a writer and a fan?

We want you on our team! Interstellar Flight Magazine is currently seeking essays on pop culture, movies, geekery, and scifi/fantasy/horror book-related topics.

What we like:

We’re big fans of io9, Wired, Tor.com, Electric Literature, Book Riot, and Locus Mag. We want essays on popular culture, movies, books, video games, SFF culture, conventions, and anything else geeky. We’d love to see a focus on resistance, feminism, and edgy topics. We’re always interested in hearing from underrepresented and marginalized voices. How you define that is up to you.

  • Essays should be 250–1500 words.
  • Please submit in .doc, .docx, or .rtf format.
  • Essays should be timely, i.e. that movie you just saw and loved/hated, a book that just came out, or a current topic of discussion online.
  • Please include links as hyperlinks in your document. Please do not include images (Tweet embeds are fine).
  • You may also submit pitches (A summary of your idea in 200 words or less).
  • Reprint essays are fine if they are relevant, but we regret that we cannot pay for reprints at this time.

Payment for original essays is $15 on publication. We regret that we are only able to make payments via Paypal at this time. Simultaneous submissions are fine, just let us know if you need to withdraw. Articles are published under First North American Rights and may be provided as members-only content on a future Patreon page. (We’ll let you know if we’d like to use your essay there). If accepted, writers will be asked to create a Medium profile. Submissions are only accepted through the submission form. Please do not email submissions.
