Call for Submissions – Novellas

Worldsmyths is now open to novella submissions for speculative fiction novels between 20k and 40k words. We have no theme – send us your best work! Our only requirement is that the stories have a speculative element of some kind.

What we don’t want: Excessive violence and darkness. Stories don’t need to have a happy ending, but they shouldn’t be endlessly bleak. Nothing wrong with dark stories, just not our cup of tea. We also don’t want religious texts or essays. Stories below or over wordcount will be deleted unread. No AI generated or assisted stories.
