About

Hexagon is an online magazine created to take our readers to fantastic worlds and to meet incredible characters. We specialize in the weird, the wondrous, and the whimsical!

Hexagon represents a diverse community of authors and artists who are passionate about short form speculative fiction. We currently accept both English and French prose and poetry. For more information, see our Submission Guidelines. We publish quarterly, with issues releasing on March 1st, June 1st, September 1st, and December 1st.

Editor in chief JW Stebner has been writing and reading speculative fiction for 15 years. A member of the Literary Translators’ Association of Canada, he understands and appreciates the diversity of Canadian and international artists. JW is also editing an Arthopoda anthology with Perennial Press, scheduled for release in early 2022. JW reads every single submission and edits both the prose and poetry for Hexagon, so you can be sure that your work has been read in full by the editor before a response is sent.

We do our best to submit our published pieces for Pushcart, Best of Net, and as many “Best of” anthologies as we can!

Feng Gooi’s short story “Memories Taste Best When Marinated with Sadness” is a finalist for the 2021 WSFA Small Press Award! Feng’s story was published in our Issue 2 / Fall 2020 issue.

“You can tell that the editor puts a lot of attention into how the stories in the collection work together to achieve a mood.”

jean-Paul Garnier (Warp Speed Odyssey, January 28, 2021)

“Overall this is a very stimulating speculative fiction zine, full of intriguing concepts, intelligent extrapolation, and darn good writing.”

R. Graeme Cameron (Amazing Stories, February 5th, 2021)

“Hexagon is a semi-pro magazine that looks like a professional journal.”

jason Kahler (the Future Fire, January 11, 2021)
