2023 Call for Submissions

Parsec has two open submission announcements!

1. Triangulation anthology by Parsec Ink.

Theme for 2023 is: Seven Day Weekend.

Open to poetry and short stories. Stories have a hard cap of 5000 words.
Automation simplifies our lives, to the point where a production facility is so automated it makes no sense wasting energy to run lights. These “dark factories” are currently present in the auto industry, the electronics industry, and even the robotics industry itself. What does the world look like when jobs are automated to the point that the labor force is non-existent? We’re looking for outstanding fantasy, science fiction, weird fiction, and speculative horror—from both new and established writers.

Submissions close Feb 28, 2023

2. Twenty-seventh annual Parsec Short Story Contest.

Theme for 2023 is: Preserve or Purge.

This contest is open to non-professional writers– those who have not met professional eligibility requirements for SFWA or equivalent.
Stories must be original, unpublished, and unsold to any other market.
Stories should be less than 3500 words.
The winning story will be the one that most effectively uses the contest theme as a key element.

Submissions close May 1, 2023

You can view the full requirements and submit stories to either or both of these open calls by using the Parsec Submittable portal
