Kill Your Darlings is now accepting unsolicited submissions to our inaugural Speculative Fiction/Fantasy Showcase, due to be published in the magazine in May 2019. We encourage writers from diverse backgrounds and all levels of experience to submit to this showcase. Please follow these guidelines on submission:

  • Submissions should be in PDF format, size 12, double spaced, Times New Roman font.
  • Stories must be between 2000–3000 words.
  • Stories (or a significant portion thereof) must be previously unpublished.
  • Include a short cover letter with relevant biography (no more than 50 words).
  • You must be a KYD Member to be considered. Memberships start from $17.50. 

Kill Your Darlings pays all of its contributors. Successful writers will be notified in mid-February and will be expected to undergo editing with KYD staff. Due to the expected volume of submissions, we will not be able to provide feedback on unsuccessful stories.
