Show your support for our work, and the authors we publish, for only $1 per month.
Every contribution helps!
Every Patron, at every level will get access to all the posts on our Patreon account where we deliver regular updates on the behind the scenes activities on the site.
Sponsorship of one story each month.
Patrons at this tier will be allocated one of the short stories each month to be a "brought to you by" feature. This can include just a name or link to a website.
We feature new and up-and-coming Science Fiction and Fantasy authors and aim to publish the best in new fiction on the site.
In addition to Emerging Worlds, ZS also brings you up to date news on the SFF industry, reviews of our reading lists and interviews with Indie authors.
We hate ads as much as you do and so are running the site ad-free. Support on Patreon will allow us to continue our mission of discovering new quality SFF authors and shining the spotlight on their work.
An increase in Patreon revenue would first be used to cover the operational costs of the site and publication of the eZine, including webhosting, domain names, author and artist payments etc.
After these costs are covered we plan to give the revenue back to the authors that produce the work that brings us all back to the genre. It's important to us that all our authors are paid for their work. At the moment we are paying authors £5 for each story published. One of our main aims is to increase the author payments to match the top publications in the market. The SFWA has recently issued new guidance that their qualifying rate has increased to $0.08 per word. Reaching this rate (or the sterling equivalent) is our aim!
With your support we can continue publishing exciting new speculative fiction, every week!

If we achieve this then the site will no longer be running at a loss!
