This week our featured market is Neon – an independent UK-based literary magazine which publishes a selection of fiction and poetry three times each year. Each edition combines magical realism with horror, slipstream and literary writings. Neon have a particular taste for the surreal and strange.
The digital edition of the magazine is available for free online, and the print issue can be shipped to anywhere in the world.
Neon have very free submission guidelines. Here’s what they ask for:
There is no set word limit, but please send enough work to cover approximately three pages of the magazine. This could be one story, a couple of flash fictions, or several poems. I prefer darker pieces, especially those with an element of the surreal or speculative. I am open to reading anything, however, and am often surprised by pieces that don’t fall into these categories.
