Moksha is a manuscript submissions system used by some of the largest publications in genre fiction, including Lightspeed Magazine, Nightmare Magazine, The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction, Strange Horizons, Apex Magazine, ChiZine Publications, The Best American Science Fiction and Fantasy, among others. Your ads on the Moksha system will be seen by a highly select and sought-after demographic of genre media fans.
How it Works
When an author submits a story to the Moksha system she receives a confirmation email, which includes a URL that she can use to check her submission status. This URL is visible on both mobile and desktop devices. Along with the basic information about her submission and its current status, this page displays their position in the queue. Authors will check back on this page frequently to see the status of their submission, often multiple times per day.
Your ad will appear on every status page, for a month in all desktop or mobile devices. You can choose ad placement on one, several, or all domains using Moksha.
The Moksha submissions system is as of April 2017 averaging about 50,000 status page views per month and about 3,000 author submissions per month. This number can increase dramatically during active reading periods. We suggest you check with the individual sites and their schedules to maximize your ad impressions.
The demographic is mainly English-speaking authors from the US, Canada, and the United Kingdom, with a broad mix from about sixty other countries. You should check each website for their specific tastes, but the primary demographic is currently science fiction, fantasy, and horror fans. (This will change as more organizations adopt Moksha, and those changes will be reflected here.) Since our current clients use Moksha to publish magazines and novels, our demographic is presently 100% writers and their agents or representatives. You can expect a large cross-section of the genre writing community to view your ad.
