Hexagon is an online magazine created to take 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 short fiction. 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 (he/him) has been writing and reading speculative fiction for over 15 years. JW has edited 13 issues of Hexagon Magazine and is also editing Arthopoda, an upcoming anthology from Perennial Press, scheduled for release in 2023. JW reads every single submission and edits each piece for Hexagon, so you can be sure that your work has been read 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!

“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 5, 2021)

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

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

“A first-class publication with an editor who’s both courteous and competent.”
