COSMOS Magazine issue 49

COSMOS Magazine

Outline a pitch of your idea in 300 words or so, include some background on yourself and any examples of work and email it to SUBMISSIONS where it will be considered by Managing Editor Heather Catchpole or Deputy Editor Jonathan Nally. Make sure you state right up front what the pitch is about, and why our readers should be interested.

It’s best that you do not submit entire finished articles, or send any printed matter by post.

If you have questions about submissions, write to EDITORIAL. Please be patient! We get lots and lots of submissions, so find it hard to respond to all of them, but we will reply if we are interested in your pitch.

Science fiction

Fiction submissions are currently closed. No new submissions will be accepted, but if you have queries about already accepted work, these can be sent to the Fiction Editor, Cat Sparks, at FICTION.

For information on the type of stories we’ve published, what we pay and so on, please download our Fiction Guidelines. We buy stories of between 2,000 and 4,000 words in length.

Photographers and illustrators

Would you like to be considered for publication in COSMOS? Then our Art Director would like to hear from you.
