Hello, and welcome to Tatterhood Review, a fantasy and science-fiction imprint of our parent magazine, Ember Chasm. We’ve just sparked a fire in the fireplace, so come in, take a seat, kick off your seven-league boots, and tell us your fantastical stories over a mug of warm mead or iced nebula juice.

We started this imprint for a few reasons. First, out of our love for fantasy and science fiction. As story consumers, both Miranda and Nathan were raised in the magical realms of seven-shade coats, storm-light drinking bridge men, a certain Mars miner devoted to tearing down a golden society in a far-flung, brutal future. We wanted to create a dedicated space to those kinds of stories, and with Tatterhood, we’ve done so.

Second, because our publishing schedule here is far quicker and leaner than Ember Chasm, that means we can publish more stories, which allows the voices, and the worlds, of more writers to shine brilliantly from all computer screens, like a sky of stars twinkling amid the galaxies of the internet.

Our publishing schedule: We plan on publishing two short stories, two poems, and two visual art pieces online per month. Payment is $10 through PayPal (if you don’t have PayPal, we can work something else out) and submissions are received solely through our Submittable account.

As for what we’re looking for: we want fantasy that exists out behind the famous tavern, out in the strange twists of woods that no one has traveled through before, and no one will again; fantasy that blends the magical and the real and anything in between, that’s brutal and honest to the characters. We want science fiction that’s original, that throws you into the glitching areas lurking between the gears, that sends you soaring to breathtaking skylines, or the deepest pits of the WiFi dark zones.

Tatterhood Review is very excited to announce our first ever Winter Contests which will officially close for submissions on March 5th for both Fiction & Poetry. There is no theme for this contest, however, we enjoy innovation and immersion when it comes to form and content, and we encourage you to explore our online content or authors like Ted Chiang, Aimee Bender, Brandon Sanderson, Pierce Brown, Carmen Maria Machado, and Neil Gaiman, as well as poets like Amal El-Mohtar, Kristin Chang, e.e. cummings, and W.B. Yeats. We are happy to review submissions of all genres—literary fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, magical realism, experimental, horror, gothic etc. Submissions for our contest will officially close on December 5th. There will be two writers in each category awarded for our contest. The prizes are as follows: First Place: $100, publication and interview with Tatterhood. Runner up: publication and interview with Button Eye.   Our guidelines:
