About Us


If you would like to submit work for publication, please email (see Writers' Guidelines below). Despite the staggering increase in submissions over the years, we've remained dedicated to reading each and every piece of writing we receive, and been delighted each time one of those submissions has appeared in VIS. We've watched with pride as those yet-unsung stories and poems rose through the ranks, often through our pages and into those of various anthologies. It takes a long time to read all of your submissions, and if you're still waiting on us to respond to your last submission, we appreciate your patience, and we expect to have a response in the coming weeks. To ensure a wide range of writers can submit work this season, we are extending our submission window to October 15. We are currently reading for all open issues: Summer 2019 and Winter 2019: No theme, just quality fiction and poetry. VIS Writers' Guidelines:Please submit only one story (7,500 word limit), or up to six poems at a time. Multiple submissions will not be read. We will do our best to respond within six months. Voices in Space does accept simultaneous submissions. In the event that the work is accepted for publication elsewhere, please do us the courtesy of informing us promptly. Only previously unpublished works will be considered for publication. Cover letters should include a word count and a brief publication history (if applicable).


VIS is an online journal that curates work by exciting younger writers as well as established voices. Our mission is to publish the finest in contemporary fiction and poetry, and to feature a diversity of writers who exhibit an original sensibility and a commanding perspective.
