The Subtopian Magazine
subtopia definition: n (Social Science / Human Geography) Britsuburban development that encroaches on rural areas yet appears to offer the attractions of country life to suburban dwellers [blend of suburb + Utopia] subtopian adj Like so many words in the English language, “subtopia” is subject to change. We take it to mean a world between possibilities. It isn’t utopia, not yet, but it’s not quite dystopia either. We’re subtopian, still waiting to see which way this pendulum swings. Founded by author Trevor Richardson, The Subtopian Magazine is a Portland-based magazine that looks for fiction, non-fiction, poetry and art. We look for work that deals with the issue of our impending future. Stories that express a view of society in between the two extremes are given top consideration, but we’ll also publish dystopian fiction and, if you’re brave enough, a story describing utopia. Good luck with that.
Sue Brower is Executive Editor at Zondervan in charge of fiction and thinks she has the best job in the world…she gets paid to read all day! Zondervan is currently looking for completed manuscripts to fill the Zondervan First fiction eBook platform.

We are also looking for proposals in the Contemporary, Historical, Suspense, and Romance categories for our print program.

MARKETS TO WRITE FOR
THE GHOSTS OF DC ANTHOLOGY
Since this is an election year we thought that it might be
interesting to publish a horror anthology about politicians.
Throughout history many of our political figures have suffered
painful events or tragic deaths. What we are looking for is
stories that twist this event. For example, what if the doctors
that treated George Washington were vampires, or the reason it
took so long to bury Abraham Lincoln was because he kept
wandering off. Don’t change history but feel free to play it.
No political opinions allowed. Deadline August 31, 2012.
You will need to make your selection and contact us
before you start writing. The reason for this is that
you will need to reserve your choice to avoid multiple
submissions on the President or the politician. We are
looking for a wide assortment of figures for this publication.
Submit 4,000-10,000 words. $25 advance paid upon publication
with quarterly payments after advance has been met.
