weirderary began an indefinite hiatus in 2018. We are no longer accepting submissions.

weirderary was founded on the idea that difference should be embraced, not condemned. In writing, we enjoy the unusual. We want to be surprised. We appreciate humor, but that doesn’t only mean light-hearted and goofy. Feel free to go dark. Get serious, just do it in a form or from a perspective we don’t see very often. Cross genre lines and experiment. Send us the work you don’t know how to define.

Submitting guidelines:

  • Please tell us the word count (if applicable) and whether or not the submission was previously published.
  • Please do not submit more than three items per category per submission period.
  • We allow simultaneous submissions as long as you notify us right away if your work is accepted elsewhere.
  • We prefer previously unpublished work, but will occasionally accept published work if it is an exceptionally good fit.

FLASH (fiction or non): max 498 words
FICTION: max 2,976 words
NONFICTION: max 2,733 words
POETRY: bring it
COMICS: yes, please
ART: def go for it

Note: For previously unpublished work, we ask for first serial rights and first electronic rights. For previously published work, we ask for one-time rights. We also ask for electronic archival rights for all work (meaning once it’s up on our site, we have the right to keep it there forever). All other rights revert to the author upon publication.

Unfortunately, we are not able to pay contributors at this time.
