Metaphysical Circus Press is reviewing unsolicited submissions until Oct. 15th for See the Elephant (est. 2015), a twice yearly ezine featuring cross-genre, cross-cultural fiction stories with a metaphysical angle.
The editors are encouraging seasoned and professional writers to submit short fiction, between 500 and 7K words. They want to receive stories that represent literary fantastic, slipstream, weird, magical realism and supernatural short fiction.
Because this reading period is open to professional writers only, emerging writers are encouraged to enter the publication’s “New Voices Contest,” which will award cash prizes to winners. Entry is free.
Payment: 6 cents per word, up to $200 max for original, unpublished stories; or 2 cents per word for reprints; or 1 cent per word up to $100 max for web only reprints.
Melanie Lamaga serves as Publisher and Editor-in-Chief. Read the contributor’s guidelines at the magazine’s Submittable page.
