ONLINE SUBMISSION FORM

Calling Sci-Fi & Historical Fiction Writers of Color!

Want to showcase your time travel stories with a chance of royalties? We are looking to publish the best time travel stories of all time!

Time Traveler's Digest is a new short story and novel submission site for writers of science fiction, fantasy, and historical fiction. It is the world's first magazine dedicated to the minds that spend hours thinking about how they could travel through time.

The book, Time Traveler's Digest, created by Writer/Producer Damien Lamar Robinson will be released in May 2023 and will bring us narratives directly from the first students of time travel.
We are currently taking submissions for our inaugural quarterly magazine and are seeking unique and exciting stories about "the first time travelers" in history.
We publish creators from different backgrounds and/or communities who might otherwise struggle to get their work in front of an audience.

Your time travel story can be among the first-hand accounts of historical and futuristic events and could be featured in the book and the quarterly magazine!

Earn $200 for every story we accept and publish -- plus you can brag about it to the world!

There is no fee for submissions, and all submissions are automatically considered for our journal.

We ask that you not submit your work unless you fall into one of the categories listed above. We believe this is fair because we are taking up space from someone else who would be better suited to write an article about their own experience.

If you're eager to share your story with an enthusiastic audience of time travel fans, our team of editors is eager to embrace your work! If you feel you're up to the challenge, submit your work!

Submissions Deadline is December 31, 2022, and winners will be notified by February 15, 2023. Terms are subject to change at the discretion of the Time Traveler’s Digest editing team.

If you need help with a story, here are some prompts to get your writing started:

1. You discover your double in the past.

2. You're standing in the middle of a crowd. The air is thick with smoke, and you can barely see past the milling bodies. You've been here for hours now, waiting for something to happen. Finally, it does: A man comes running down the street with a torch in his hand. He's screaming something—you can't quite make out what—but you understand his intent perfectly when he throws the torch onto some papers just behind him, and they instantly burst into flames. As you watch the fire spread, a strange sense of déjà vu washes over you: You recognize those papers as being from your scroll obtained at The Academy of Time Travelers!

3. You are Julius Caesar and have just discovered that Cleopatra is trying to poison you.

4. You are working as a scientist at a government agency in the future when you meet your wife from another time period who has been pulled into your life by accident.

5. You are a time traveler and have just traveled back to ancient Egypt. You are in the palace, and you see Julius Caesar and Cleopatra. They are arguing about something, but you don't know what it is. They stop talking and stare at you as soon as they see you. What do you do?
