At Metamorphose, we believe in cultivating talented authors. Because of this, all authors accepted for publication receive FREE edits on their stories prior to publication. There are 3 different levels of authorship with Metamorphose:

Novice*

For authors just getting started with the editing and publishing process.

A Novice is:

  • previously unpublished
  • up to 2 stories published with Metamorphose
  • up to 1.500 words published FREE online

Initiate*

For those who are initiated into the publishing process, but aren’t quite experienced in the writing and editing craft.

An Initiate is:

  • 3-4 stories published with Metamorphose
  • up to 3,500 words stories published online
  • $50 flat rate pay

Fabler*

For authors who have experience and a simple mastery of the writing and editing craft.

A Fabler is:

  • 5+ stories published with Metamorphose
  • up to 7,000 words stories published in print or online (Author choice)
  • $150 flat rate pay
  • FREE contributor copy

*Previous publication with Metamorphose does not automatically qualify authors for future publication with Metamorphose or any other publisher.

General Submission

Metamorphose is open to submissions all year. We accept work in science fiction and fantasy from previously unpublished authors. We enjoy stories both funny and dark, as long as they have a clear element of the genres. We particularly love old fashion, non-cliché S&S fantasy.

Please submit stories according to your authorship level. Submissions that do not follow submission guidelines will not be considered – or worse, you may not hear anything at all.

Stories MUST be:

  • previously unpublished (this includes websites, blogs, and social media)
  • within authorship WC limits
  • Standard Manuscript Format
  • .doc/.docx format
