The Biopunk Reader


We welcome blog posts and submissions from guest contributors. At this point in the process, we’re looking on a rolling basis for short fiction, poetry, artwork, news stories, reviews--all of course, with a hefty serving of punk on the side.

Currently, we cannot offer monetary compensation for contributions, although we will be happy to include your bio on our Contributors page, including links to your sites, blogs, and publications.


Please keep individual nonfiction entries between 200 and 800 words. Longer pieces that have been split into more than one part (and can thus be posted as separate entries) are welcome.

We welcome fiction of any length, though we prefer pieces between 500 and 7,000 words. If you are interested in submitting fiction longer than 10,000 words, we will need to serialize it, so please split it into chapters of 1,000 to 5,000 words.

We can never get enough graphic art--drawings, photography, comics, what have you. We will consider both standalone pieces and galleries of up to five pieces in one post. Feel free to include commentary and captions. Also, if you are interested in illustrating for us, send a sample of your work, let us know if you prefer illustrating nonfiction or fiction pieces, and we'll match you up with a story.

For those interested in contributing regularly to the blog, we will consider serials and columns. Please query first; include your concept, a short bio about yourself, a sample of previous work, at least five post ideas (if nonfiction), and a plot synopsis (if fiction).

Other sorts of material are welcome; query first.

Attach written work in RTF format (standard format, preferrably; no page headings are necessary) and graphic art as JPEG. Query for other formats. In the body of the email, please include a short cover letter, a bio of yourself, and any links you'd like included on our Contributor page. Email to christinedanse [at] and miss_abiotic [at]

We will edit submissions for grammar, punctuation, and formatting, but not content. We will send any changes to you for approval before publication.

We welcome simultaneous submissions, but please notify us immediately if your piece is accepted elsewhere.
