We are extremely excited to announce that after polling data between our Special LitRPG Editions and our Science Fantasy Editions, we have decided to roll forward with a brand new magazine! We are seeking short stories and/or snippets of existing novels for inclusion in an anticipated July 1st release.
SciFan™ Entertainment is pleased to offer payment for accepted Short Stories and Serials. The payment schedule is as follows: $4.00 per 1,000 words, up to a maximum of $40.00 per short story or Serial Piece (10,000 or more words). Payment is made through PayPal at the time a submission is accepted.
*Disclaimer: Sample Previews and Related Content will not receive any payouts, but will receive exclusive exposure.
LitRPG GENRE REQUIREMENTS
All content must adhere to the following LitRPG definition (this includes short story, preview and related content):
“LitRPG is a literary genre where games or game-like challenges form an essential part of the landscape. A LitRPG work simultaneously narrates the story of characters inside and outside of the game-world. At least some of the characters in a LitRPG novel therefore understand that they are playing a game: they are ‘meta-aware’. So, while Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings is a fantasy novel, a book about people creating avatars and interacting in a Lord of the Rings MMORPG would be a LitRPG novel.” – Courtesy of LitRPGForum.com
