GENERAL SPECULATIVE FICTION
OPEN CALL SPECULATIVE FICTION AUTHORS
What is speculative fiction?
Speculative fiction is a broad category of narrative fiction that includes elements, settings, and characters created out of imagination and speculation and not based on reality and everyday life. It encompasses the genres of science fiction, fantasy, science fantasy, horror, alternative history, and magic realism. JOIN US!

I really enjoy writing short stories and flash fiction, the challenge and how it helps improve my scene writing too. Great practice for exercising our writing muscles and honing our skills.
