Call for Submissions for Philippine Genre Stories

My friend and editor Kenneth Yu announced this call for submissions to his online fiction mag Philippine Genre Stories for the first quarter of the year. Incidentally, I'm the one hosting the web site; if you haven't read the stories there yet, give it a try. It's a venue for talented young writers to get published. I might also add that that is one of the first mags in which I got my stories out.

PGS Online will be open to fiction submissions by Pinoy writers for reading and consideration from January 1, 2012 to April 30, 2012.

1. Word count: 1,500 up to 8,000 words.

2. Preferred genres: Science fiction, fantasy, crime, mystery, horror, and all subgenres falling under these.

3. Keep in mind that PGS caters not only to adult readers, but also to minors. This is not to say that profanity, gore, violence, and sex will not be accepted in a story, but make sure that such is integral to the story and not just for its own sake. Otherwise, PGS is open to any type of story treatment.

4. Payment is P500.00 for an accepted piece.

5. Please follow standard manuscript format for short story submissions.

6. Email submissions as rtf or doc attachments to pdofsf(at)yahoo(dot)com.

Feel free to either write the above email address or leave a comment here if you have any questions. Thank you.


  1. My thesis adviser told me to submit a story. Would you mind playing editor again, if ever? :)

    1. Ha ha, just send it over. Kyu and his cohorts will do a good job of editing it.
