We already have some great submissions. I can't wait to read yours. Don't wait until the end to submit.

Writing Challenge

We got a message from someone who thought our 300 word writing challenge was a bit cliched. The person who contacted our publisher seemed to be under the impression we were requiring a shootout of some kind. Nowhere in the guidelines does it say anything of the sort.  What sort of story a contributor wants to do is up to them.  We just set out certain parameters.  That's why it's called a writing challenge.  Whether a shootout takes place or something else entirely is up to the writer.  Frankly, with only one bullet, a shootout seems improbable and certainly not the only approach to the situation.

Happy New Year

We wish everyone a happy new year. Although our first reading period won't start for another month, we have now posted our writers guidelines. Just click on the tab. Please note there are actually two pages, as we are continuing our popular 300 word writing challenges which we did with Steampunk Trails 2.

Merry Christmas to all

We wish all of our readers the best for the holidays.  In a few days we'll began the process of developing our new magazine.  The writers guidelines will be posted here and emailed to past contributors of Steampunk Trails & Science Fiction Trails.
