January Newsletter: Map Making Competition, Issue 4 Submissions Open and Latest Issue Release!

Greetings mythological beings and extra-terrestrial travellers!

We here at Otherverse hope you are having a Happy New Year. We have plenty of exciting news to share with you, and lots for you to get involved in! Read on to find out more…


If you didn’t know it, Issue 3 of Otherverse Magazine was released in December, and is available for your viewing pleasure on our website! You can find the latest issue right here. Featuring some tongue-in-cheek cover art and stories about everything from the end of the world to a pub-going vampire, there’s plenty to sink your teeth into (pun intended).

We are so proud of the writers and stories involved in this issue. We hope you will enjoy flipping through the virtual pages of these entrancing tales.


Are you a writer with a passion for science-fiction or fantasy? Do you have a short story or novel extract you’d love to share with the world? Fancy the chance to be published? Then submit to Issue 4 of our magazine! We’d love to read your work and consider every entry we receive. To get started with your submission, just click right here: https://otherversemagazine.com/submissions/.

If you’re on the fence about submitting or have that one manuscript in your drawer that you just haven’t been brave enough to share yet, we want your words. Nothing is possible without taking the first step… and who knows where it may lead!


In a thrilling Otherverse first, we have launched a map competition! Never heard of a map making competition before? Well, neither had we, which is why we’ve made one. In our experience of working with writers, we know what a creative bunch they can be. Many writers out there are cartographers on the side, drawing simplistic, or intricate, or beautifully imaginative maps of worlds they have invented. Sometimes these are created to go along with a book they are writing. Sometimes they’re just made for fun!

Our competition is open to any and everyone who has made (or wants to make) a science-fiction or fantasy map. This could be a map of any place, from a haunted house to a spaceship or magical sky city.

Artists, writers, poets – this is your chance to submit your creations. We think it’s a shame that so many brilliant and lovingly made maps don’t have a place to be shown off to the world. We want to be that place, and we hope you will enjoy sharing your maps with us.

That’s all from us. We hope you will submit to our upcoming issue or map making competition. Seeing new work from our growing community of writers, readers and artists really makes our day.

Over and out,

The Otherverse Team
