Send us your pitches: We’re primarily looking for standalone articles and essays about fantasy fiction—that includes all epic fantasy, but also any major works that might be lumped into fantasy/fantasy-adjacent categories. We will also consider articles about current, upcoming, and potential film and television adaptations of fantasy books and stories. This is not a call for reread pitches: if you have an idea for a series of posts or a column, that’s great, but each article would have to stand on its own as an individual essay (not as part of a sequence of chapter-by-chapter installments).
-The main requirement is that you know your stuff inside and out: Whether you’re pitching a lighter list post or an in-depth essay, your writing should display a high level of familiarity with the source material, and you must be willing to do any quick research/fact-checking the piece requires.
-If possible, please submit 2-3 writing samples or links to your work along with your pitch(es). Regular blogging or previous writing experience will be considered a major plus.
-In the interest of promoting the widest possible range of perspectives, we strongly encourage pitches that explore issues of diversity and representation within the fantasy genre in terms of race, gender, religion, class, ability, etc., as well as submissions that bring an unconventional, unorthodox, or underrepresented point of view to bear on fantasy fiction.
-Articles would ideally be around 7oo-2500 words, depending on subject. Payment is per article.
Those interested should email TorcomFantasy@tor.com with pitches, writing samples, and questions.
