Thrice Fiction is a constant blending of old and new. Of the works we publish, 99% are 100% unsolicited. Consequently this assures you that every story we get, we read. Everything gets a fair shot.
A few things before we dig in...
There are a few things that will hurt your chances. These are not hard-and-fast rules that determine great art from mere baggage. Others may not have the same idea, and that's fine. But here at Thrice Fiction there are certain things we like, and certain things we don’t...
And, of course, all these rules will be tossed away if you send us something that can’t be denied.
HOW AND WHEN TO SUBMIT YOUR WORK
All submissions are made via email. Cover letters are a matter of complete indifference to us. So is your bio. We don’t care who you are or what you’ve done or where you have been published. Let the work speak for itself. Nothing is worse than seeing your fantastic bio and, after reading your submission, wondering how you ever got published in the first place.
IMPORTANT: Attach your work to an email as a Microsoft Word .doc file or similar standard text format (like .rtf) to save everybody the extra grief. Don’t include the submission in the body of the email — we never know what spacing and form is intended when we transfer emails to the published page.
Have a picture and third-person bio handy when we accept your work. Have another submission handy if we don’t.
Thrice Fiction is published thrice yearly, and we ask that you PLEASE do not send any of your work outside the submission windows shown below, or we will be forced to discard it...

NOTE: If you have an AOL email address, anything we (and a lot of other people) send to you will NOT get through for some reason. If possible, please provide an alternate email address (such as a Facebook or Gmail address) in case we need to contact you.
• Send fiction submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org — please make sure it is in .doc or .rtf format.
• Send art submission queries to: email@example.com — please do not send any material unless requested.
A note about artwork... If your work is accepted for publication in Thrice Fiction we will pair you with an artist who will provide lovely visuals for whatever space is available in the layout. If you would prefer to provide your own artwork for consideration, that's perfectly acceptable, but you must make arrangements in advance so that we can get you a layout, work with you on the file requirements, and have your artwork approved before we go to press. Please note that all artwork MUST be accompanied by a statement of ownership or permission of use from the artist so that we are in compliance with copyright law. We do not accept any art where there is a question of usage rights. Please contact the Art Director at the address above if you have any questions or need to make arrangements for your story. WE USE ARTWORK IN EVERY ISSUE! If you are an artist and want to inquire about submitting your work, please contact David Simmer at the art submissions address above.
A note about copyright... All material published by THRICE Fiction remains the property of the writer or artist. We only ask for the right to publish said material in our online, digital, and printed editions. This includes archives of these editions both online and in printed annuals and specials.
