Patreon is an amazing site that allows you to donate on an ongoing basis rather than one lump sum, like a subscription. These contributions keep us running and allow us to continue Uncommon Futures. As a thank you for your subscriptions and donations, we have a list of rewards on the side of the page.

Uncommon Futures is a publication made up of real-life stories, profiles, sketches, and poems. We enjoy covering the everyday, the fantastic, and the just plain interesting, and we would love nothing more than you submitting your own story, poem, or anything in-between!

Why?
“Each random passerby is living a life as vivid and complex as your own—populated with their own ambitions, friends, routines, worries and inherited craziness—an epic story that continues invisibly around you like an anthill sprawling deep underground, with elaborate passageways to thousands of other lives that you’ll never know existed, in which you might appear only once, as an extra sipping coffee in the background, as a blur of traffic passing on the highway, as a lighted window at dusk."
("Sonder." The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows.)

How do I submit my story?
We have few guidelines and are open to ideas!
Send everything to [email protected]

Why Uncommon Futures?
Philosophically, while we may have similar ideas, comparable hometowns, and common traits, we all have unique pasts, individual presents, and ultimately, Uncommon Futures. Objectively, Chris had a dream and woke up with the words spinning in his head. He has liked the name “Uncommon Futures” ever since.

Creator/Editor: Christopher Leiden
Assistant Editor: Sean Morrison
Layout Designer: Hannah Leiden

A note on rewards:
If you are interested in buying multiple copies of a specific issue or a specific back issue only, that is also an option. You simply have to email us at [email protected] and we will make it happen. While our issues are often available at cost at the time of their publication, we are relying on your generosity here to keep us moving financially and fund our ideas, art, and 3D glasses!

While we highly recommend using Patreon, if you are uncomfortable paying in an on-going fashion, you can donate a singular sum via Paypal. Email us at [email protected]!
