Metaphysical Circus Press/See the Elephant

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

See the Elephant Magazine publishes literary fantastic, slipstream, weird, magical realist and supernatural short fiction. We seek accomplished stories that live in the borderlands between the real and the unreal, and between genres. We respond best to inventive, humane, metaphysical, and/or satirical work. We are especially interested in stories from women, writers of color, indigenous and LGBTQ writers. To learn more about what we're seeking:

We pay professional rates to pro and semi-pro writers, but that means we must be highly selective in order to stay within budget.

We run annual New Voices contests with cash prizes and publication to support new and emerging writers.

We strongly encourage you to sign up for our mailing list.
( Here's why. 1. You will get See the Elephant, Issue One for free, and you can see what we do and how you might fit in. 2. You will also get a newsletter with links to the stories and reviews at See the Elephant online delivered to your inbox (once a week or less, if we're in relax mode)  3. With the support of many, we can grow and continue to serve writers, readers and lovers of strange fiction. Please also find us on Facebook @MCPress and Twitter @metacircuspress.

Thank you for your interest and support!
