This week’s Monday Markets focus on writing about religion. There is a webzine looking for submissions, a magazine looking for angel stories, and a publication that looks at a number of issues from a Christian perspective.
Third Order is a webzine created to engage with issues of faith and religion through mainstream, traditional, experimental, and speculative short fiction.
Religion is personal and societal; it changes single souls and entire worlds. The ways of God are not always easy or explainable. The way faith tells us to go is not always the way we expected. At Third Order Magazine, we’re interested in exploring those dynamics. We’re less DaVinci Code and more Flannery O’Connor — with, of course, the occasional extraterrestrial.
We plan to publish, on a quarterly basis, mainstream/traditional, experimental and speculative short fiction that deals with faith and religion. There are no other requirements concerning plot, characterization, or genre, save a few of the editor’s personal preferences, which are listed below.
