Polygon Seeks New Submissions of Speculative Fiction

  29 Jun '23   |  Posted by: Birlinn

Polygon is currently seeking new submissions of speculative fiction with a strong Scottish connection. Examples of the kind of associations to Scotland we are looking for would include, but are not limited to, historical fantasy set in Scotland or science fiction taking place in a near-future or alternate-reality contemporary Scotland.

We will be accepting submissions via our online portal here, in the form of a synopsis, the first three chapters of a typescript and a brief biographical note.

We are especially interested in submissions from underrepresented groups in publishing, such as those from ethnically diverse or socioeconomically marginalised backgrounds, the LGBTQ+ community, disabled writers and religious minorities. 

Submissions will be accepted until 31 July 2023.
