Payment: FutureShocks will pay for fiction and non-fiction at the rate of 1 cent a word up to 5,000 words, thereafter 1/2 cent a word to finale for FNASR (First North American Serial Rights).

How to Submit: Submissions must be sent by electronic means, email is a must. The submission must be in Microsoft Word format as a .doc file. Please do not add themes, fancy page breaks, or thunderous font, keep it simple, double spaced with a clear ending and beginning. You can send submissions as a .txt file (Text File), but this is the only variation that is accepted. Due to the amount of time it causes for us to change and format the submission this is the only way we can accept the documents.

Response Time: 2 - 3 weeks

Tips for Writers: If possible please compress the submission using Winzip on a Microsoft Windows machine, if you are operating a Macintosh, a utility called Stuffit works as well. Zipping the file frees up a lot of space in our email boxes.

We do not like simultaneous submissions, and usually result to rejecting these based on the complications that can arise from it.
