See the Elephant Submissions & New Voices Contest Open

We are pleased to announce that short fiction submissions are now open.

We broke the ice last month with stories by our editors to give you a sense of who we are and what we like. Now we are looking for work that is NOT by us.

If you are a writer of slipstream, weird, magical realist or supernatural fiction (and you are not us), we want to hear from you!

We are by authors, for authors. That means we pay pro rates to pro and semi-pro authors. We are looking for new stories and we love reprints, especially of work that is not currently available on the web. New writers can win cash prizes and publication through our contests. Check out the links below to get started.



If you like what you see, support us by following the Circus.

You can also help us spread the word by following and engaging on Twitter (@metacircuspress) Facebook ( and Google +.

Thank you for your support!
