Writer Guidelines


Stories with sex, profanity, excessive violence, or that belittle traditional family values or religion will not be considered. To get a feel for what we will and will not accept, please purchase a sample copy. You can find single issue sales and subscription information on our website.

Simultaneous submissions will not be considered. All simultaneous submissions will be recycled without reply. Because of our current backlog, expect processing time to be around seven to nine months. Any questions or comments can be e-mailed to the fiction director at fiction@leadingedgemagazine.com.

ATTENTION: Due to the overwhelming amout of electornic slush that Leading Edge currently has, and due to the fact that we are shorter on staff in the Summer, our fiction submissions will be closing until further notice. We're sorry for the inconvenience, but we encourage you to check back periodically so that you can submit as soon as we open up submissions.

Submissions may be sent to the following address with the appropriate genre in the attention line (fiction director or poetry director):

Leading Edge Magazine

Provo, UT 84602

Manuscripts may also be submitted electronically as attachments in .doc or .rtf form to fiction@leadingedgemagazine.com.

Do you want to be forever loved?! Check out our logo contest...


Hey Leading Edge fans! We're looking to change a few things about the magazine, but in order to do that, the magazine needs a new face. So. We're going to ask YOU for a little help.

We need a new logo. Something current, fresh (it is Leading Edge), and that will appeal to our audience. We're looking for the best logo for Issue 67, which will be published in December of 2014, and onward. In addition to a new logo, we'll also be unveiling several other new aspects to the magazine. We will pay the winner of this contest a sum of $50 to use the logo until it no longer appeases our audiences. Also, you'll get cred in every issue. Insta fame.

Send your logo designs to art@leadingedgemagazine.com, in .pdf format, where our lovely managing editor Kenna, and her trusty assistants Adam and Michela, will consider all submissions. Good luck!

All entries for this contest must be submitted by November 25, 2014.

Deadline: November 25, 2014
