From the MYTHIC submission guidelines:

Science fiction and fantasy have been put into boxes in recent times by standard tropes, conventions, settings, and so on. We at MYTHIC want to be a place where under-represented visions in science fiction and fantasy can once more be explored. We want wider, more diverse views of the future and realms of the fantastic that don't necessarily involve quasi-medieval settings.

Does this mean we aren't interested in more traditional tales? Not at all. Bring us your space operas, your sword & sorcery, your lost world adventures, swashbuckling adventures in mystical lands, or throwback stories that hearken to the rip-roaring yarns of the old pulp fiction days. Surprise us.

Authors are encouraged to submit their stories during the specific reading periods listed below.

Reading Periods

June 1 through July 31

December 1 through January 31


Update 2024:


Mythic Magazine is a publication dedicated to speculative fiction, particularly focusing on stories that blend elements of myth, fantasy, and science fiction. It offers a platform for both established and emerging writers to explore themes of wonder, imagination, and the intersection of mythic archetypes with futuristic or fantastical settings.

The magazine features short stories, novellas, and poetry that transport readers to imaginative worlds filled with gods, monsters, heroes, and magic, often intertwined with futuristic technology or otherworldly landscapes. Mythic Magazine seeks to evoke a sense of awe and mystery, inviting readers to journey into realms where the boundaries between reality and myth blur.

In addition to fiction, Mythic Magazine may include essays, interviews, and reviews that delve into the themes and inspirations behind speculative storytelling. The magazine aims to foster a sense of community among writers and readers who share a passion for mythic and speculative literature.

As with many literary magazines, Mythic Magazine provides a platform for diverse voices and perspectives within the speculative fiction genre, offering readers a rich tapestry of stories that challenge conventional boundaries and expand the imagination.
