Imaginarium 2014: The Best Canadian Speculative Writing
Edited by Sandra Kasturi and Helen Marshall
Cover Art by Susanne Apgar
Deadline: January 31, 2014
The editors of Imaginarium are currently reading for next year's volume of CZP's annual "best of" anthology. Please send electronic files (PDFs) of your 2013 publications (individual stories/poems, review copies of books/magazines/anthologies) to email@example.com. (Contact us if you want to send a physical copy, but electronic versions preferred.) Please send work for consideration as far in advance of the deadline as possible.
Writers: Please send in your published work yourself, especially if you’re not sure your publisher has done so. While we read throughout the year, it's always good to send it anyway, to make sure we've seen it.
Publishers/Magazine Editors/Anthologists: Please send along your 2013 magazines/publications/collections for consideration. Even if you're publishing primarily literary fiction/poetry--“Speculative writing” covers interstitial, slipstream, magic realist, fabulist, and other material as well as generally defined genre fiction (SF, fantasy, horror). We want to see everything!
Languages other than English: We will look at work that has been published in other languages (by Canadians), but only if accompanied by an English translation. However, not if it's a translated reprint. (i.e. if it's already appeared in English in 2008, and the German printing appears in 2013, that doesn't count.)
The editors are reading poetry, short fiction, novelettes, and novellas for consideration. Material can be published anywhere in the world, as long as the author is Canadian (citizen, resident, expatriate, and so on) and the work was published in 2013. You should also send work that will be published before the calendar year is over.
