Wizards in Space believes that all writers and artists deserve compensation for their work. In line with this belief, all creators with pieces accepted will be paid $30 and retain rights to their work.

WHAT WE’RE LOOKING FOR:

For Issue 04, we seek impactful fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry, and art that orbit the charged and current conversations of our world and tell authentic stories just waiting to lift off.

We’re particularly interested in themes of space and place, things that change and things that don’t, the spots we share and the ones we keep to ourselves. Where do you go when you need peace? Where do you go when you need to be loud? What moments and what places do you find yourself returning to over and over again? What brings you back to yourself and what lets you rise above the things that try to bring you down? We invite you to experiment and invent, follow and break the rules as you see fit. Share with us your political and your personal, your faith, identity, love and loss, truths and dreams. Even if you are not sure your work fits, we want to hear from you.
