General Neon Hemlock Submission Notes:

  • Unless the editors are otherwise specified, you can address cover letters to “Dear editors” or “Dear dave.”  Please avoid “Dear Mr. Ring.”
  • Please submit your story in .doc or .docx file, formatted in something approaching Standard Manuscript Format.  One of the editors has a slight aversion to Courier and a fondness for Georgia.
  • Please include a cover/query letter with the title, length, and a brief bio.  You may include links to your website/social media, and previous publications if any.  Please don’t stress about this cover letter, if we have additional questions about your submission, we’ll ask them.
  • Simultaneous submissions are always fine; please withdraw immediately if you take another offer. Stories should be previously unpublished.
  • Please no multiple submissions.  If you receive a rejection within the submission window, you may submit another story.  
  • If you joke about how straight white men are underrepresented in speculative fiction, it will not win you any points.
  • Thanks for thinking of Neon Hemlock for your work.
  • Please don't self-reject!
