    Deadlines

    Due to the enthusiastic response to our call for submissions, we need to institute a reading period. We have filled our weekly publication slots for the upcoming months and do not wish to schedule work more than 6 months in advance.

    Submissions received on or before February 1, 2008 will be read and will receive a response. If you have not yet submitted, please make note of the following reading periods.

    Fiction, Non-Fiction, Poetry

    Big Pulp publishes fiction, non-fiction,and poetry in all genres, styles, and tones. For our thoughts on what we'd like to see, follow this link.

    We publish each piece twice - once online and once in PDF format. New online content is loaded weekly and the cumulative magazine is published quarterly. After those publications, all rights revert back to the author. In addition, we plan to publish an annual "Best Of" printed collection. Authors and artists chosen for the annual will be contacted prior to re-use of their work.
    Payment
    Fiction - 1¢ per word up to 2500 words (maximum $25.00)
    Poetry - $5 per poem

    Payment is made on publication, typically on the Sunday of the posting week. We pay electronically via Paypal only. We are not able to send cash or checks in the mail.
    Word limits
    Fiction and non-fiction - 2500 words
    Poetry - up to 3 poems; 50 lines total

    Fiction and non-fiction longer than 2500 words will very likely be considered, but no additional payment is possible at this time. Please query for pieces greater than 10,000 words.

    We ask for first North American serial rights. Reprints may be considered, but please query first. You must have the rights to your work. We prefer not to publish work posted online or archived elsewhere.

    Simultaneous submissions are okay. Please submit only one fiction or non-fiction piece at a time, or up to three poems. Do not submit additional stories or poems until you hear from us regarding your previous submissions.
    E-mail your submissions to submissions@bigpulp.com. In your subject line, enter the genre you are interested in submitting to - ex: "Submission : Mystery". Please be aware that if your submissions has elements of multiple genres, the editors may assign it to any "department" they consider the best fit and where room allows.

    Written submissions must be sent electronically in MS Word as an attachment to your e-mail. Please use normal paragraph breaks, double-space and use Courier or Times New Roman 12 point as your font. Submissions that can't be opened or are sent in the incorrect format will be returned.

    We do not accept hard copy submissions, nor submissions embedded in the body of an e-mail.

    Response time for written submissions is 6 - 8 weeks from the date of receipt.

    If we wish to publish your work, we will contact you with a standard publication agreement.

    Big Pulp requests first-time North American serial rights. All other rights are retained by the author or artist. Your acknowledgement of Big Pulp as the first-time publisher of your work is greatly appreciated by the editors. Word of Mouth rocks.

    Comics

    Big Pulp loves comics, too! All styles, genres, and lengths will be considered, up to a maximum of 8 pages.

    Stories should be complete; we are not accepting serials or continued stories at this time. Check our submission guidelines regularly for changes to this rule.

    Simultaneous submissions are okay. Please submit only one piece at a time. Do not submit additional stories or poems until you hear from us regarding your previous submissions.

    Artwork may be re-sized to fit the site layout, but will not be cropped or otherwise manipulated. Please keep in mind the general size of the browser window that readers will be using to view your images, as well as bandwidth. Your 24 x 36 inch poster might rock, but no one's going to wait for it to load or scroll for twenty minutes to see the whole thing.

    All images should be submitted in JPG format.

    E-mail your submissions to submissions@bigpulp.com. In your subject line, please enter the genre you are interested in submitting to. Please be aware that the editors may assign your story to any magazine they consider the best fit and where room allows.

    Artwork and Photography

    Big Pulp seeks original artwork for use as spot art throughout the site. Any style of artwork will be considered - color and b&w drawings and paintings, computer generated art, cartoons, and photography. Artwork may be re-sized to fit the site layout, but will not be cropped or manipulated without permission.

    E-mail your submissions to submissions@bigpulp.com. In your subject line, please enter the genre you are interested in submitting to. Please be aware that the editors may assign your story to any magazine they consider the best fit and where room allows.

    Images should be submitted in JPG format.

    If you have an online gallery, it is okay to send a note with a link to your artwork. Please indicate which pieces you are interested in submitting. Published artwork can be linked directly back to the artist's permanent online gallery.

    Big Pulp will also consider hosting an online gallery outside our regular fiction pages.
