The Strand Magazine call for Submissions

The Strand Magazine was founded in 1891 and, for the next sixty years, published the works of some the greatest authors of the 20th century.

They are interested in mysteries, detective stories, tales of terror and the supernatural as well as short stories. Stories can be set in any time or place, provided they are well written, the plots interesting and well thought out.

They will accept stories of almost any length, but preferably within the range t 2000-6000 words. However, they do occasionally publish short shorts of 1000 words, and sometimes they might even consider a short novella. At the moment, their payment rate for stories is $25-150. No submissions are ever accepted by e-mail.

You are paid for the purchase of first North American serial rights. All manuscripts should be typed, double-spaced, on one side of each page. For return of your manuscripts, please enclose a SASE of suitable size. Average response time is 4-10 months. We suggest before submitting that you purchase a copy of The Strand. You may do so by sending $10 or by visiting our web site

They do urge you to follow in the footsteps of the greatest writers of the 20th century by having your work published in The Strand Magazine. Good Luck and keep writing.
