Kasma on-line magazine pays for science fiction stories
Based in Ottawa, Canada, Kasma SF is a completely free online magazine featuring quality science fiction from some of the genre's brightest new (and sometimes more established) voices. We publish roughly one or two short stories per month.
We are looking for short science fiction between 500 and 4000 words long. Ideally, stories sent to us should be intelligent, with well thought out plots and characters. Beyond this, exactly what happens in your world with your characters is up to you. We enjoy a broad range and don't want to stifle author creativity by having elaborate expectations. Often enough, the best stories come as a surprise.
Though Kasma is a science fiction publication, we have been known to (rarely) make an exception and wander into other genres (e.g. fantasy). We do not accept poetry at this time.
Payment: We pay a flat rate of twenty-five dollars per story that we accept. Payments are made via Paypal only.
Please send us your short story by pasting it within the body of an email. No fancy fonts or formatting please. Send all work to: firstname.lastname@example.org
