About the contest
Half-Light Press is interested in publishing work that explores the margins between genres. Between reality and speculation, the modern world and fantasy, and all the possibilities of imagination, and intersections. Send us speculative fiction, magical realism, experimental and hybrid work. Think John Louis Borges, Gabriel Garcia Marques, Paul Auster, and Haruki Murakami.
We at Half-Light Press believe in paying our authors and artists, even if at the moment all we can offer is a small honorarium. To help support us in this endeavor, we charge a small reading fee for general submissions and an entry fee for our contests. If you cannot afford a reading fee, but really want to submit to Half-Light Press, please email [email protected], and we may be able to work something out.
