New Crime Fiction CRIMEWAVE 12: HURTS OUT NOW!

Contributors' Guidelines

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.


Short Stories

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.

Submit your story using our online system:
