It is strongly recommended that you study Crimewave before submitting. Being familiar with what we publish will obviously greatly improve your chances of acceptance.
Non-Fiction & Artwork
We are not currently looking for non-fiction or artwork.
We are always open to submissions of new stories of up to a maximum of 10,000 words.
Your story should be in standard MS format (double spaced, good margins, contact details, approximate word count and page numbers).
Please include a covering letter.
Never send simultaneous submissions, multiple submissions or reprints.
Please have only one story (per magazine) under consideration at any one time.
Don't be offended by a form rejection. It simply means that we're really busy, with lots of stories to read. But even a form rejection means what it says: send the rejected story somewhere else and try us with something new…and keep on trying!
Don’t submit a rejected story to another of our magazines, as we will already have considered that option.
