Readers' World Magazine Submission Guidelines:

Your initial submission (PLEASE RESTRICT TO ONE ONLY):

  • Typed manuscripts, A4 double spacing, wide margins and pages numbered. 
  • Manuscripts must be edited ready for publishing with correct spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • Please include a completed copy of the ‘Manuscript Submission SlipÂ’ (see below or in magazine).  Please also send a SSAE for our reply to you.  An e-mail address, if available, should also be included.
  • We will now only be accepting submissions if there is no editing required (eg. grammar, punctuation, spelling) as the standard of Readers' World magazine must continue to improve. If you do not correct your own work and wish for our editor to edit it, a fee of $10 will be charged for stories and articles, $5 for poetry.
We are looking for works from 500 to 5000 words, although shorter works are preferred to allow the inclusion of more authors in each issue. Any story longer than 5000 words will not be read.  

Any genre will be accepted.  Characters and plot should be plausible within the setting of the story. There should be audience appeal, entertainment and accurate research. Articles and poetry are also acceptable.

We do not accept pornographic works, socially unacceptable violence, or offensive language, although adult reading will be accepted.

We cannot accept responsibility for loss of, or damage to, material sent to us. 

If accepted, we will require your work on an IBM-compatible disc (in Microsoft Word or text format; Times New Roman font, size 10; single spacing; justified; 5mm indent at the beginning of each paragraph). 

If you cannot supply your work on disc in this exact format, we can provide this for a fee of $5 per 500 words (minimum charge is $5) and we will send the disc to you once your work has been published. (Include $2 for return of disc to you at the time of submitting your work, if you require this service).  

IF WE DO NOT RECEIVE YOUR WORK IN ELECTRONIC FORMAT, WE CANNOT PUBLISH IT - PLEASE BE AWARE OF THIS.
