We are currently closed to submissions. We will reopen submissions on July 1, 2023.
GigaNotoSaurus publishes one story a month. We pay $200 per story on acceptance. We ask for first serial rights and non-exclusive, indefinite archival rights, though the author is welcome at any time to request a story be removed from the archive. Stories are made available for reading online as well as downloadable formats (EPUB and MOBI).
What We’re Looking For:
GigaNotoSaurus accepts Science Fiction or Fantasy (or any combination thereof) from 5,000 to 25,000. We could wax eloquent describing the kinds of stories we like, but it wouldn’t be useful; there are dozens of things we don’t know we like until we try them. Send us that story you really believe in–the one, maybe, that quickly ran out of places to submit it to because it’s so long. Don’t query to gauge our interest in a particular subgenre. Just submit the story.
We actively seek to include stories told from and by a diverse range of cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations, and genders. We are particularly interested in #ownvoices stories.
Please use Modern Manuscript Format (classic will still be accepted), and upload your manuscript as a Word or Word compatible file (.docx, .doc, .rtf., .odt).
To submit a story, click this link to be taken to our page in Moksha Submissions System.
Please do not submit stories under 5000 words or over 25000 words. They will be automatically rejected.
We do not accept simultaneous submissions (stories sent to more than one market at a time)
We do not accept multiple submissions–only send us one story at a time.
We do not accept reprints or “expansions” of shorter published work. Your story must be previously unpublished (this includes self-published work).
We do not accept AI-generated stories.
Please do not resubmit a story that has been rejected by GigaNotoSaurus, even after revision, unless specifically invited to do so by the editor. These include stories that have been rejected due to word count.
Pay rate is non-negotiable.
First translations in English will be considered.
You should receive a reply to stories under seventeen thousand words in sixty days. Expect a longer response time for novellas (seventeen thousand words and up). Queries for stories of any size are appreciated after ninety days.
All queries can be sent to our email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the word “Query” in the subject line.
Thank you for thinking of us for your work!
