In conjunction with Leonard Speiser as guest publisher, a joint experiment with Space & Time magazine is excited to announce a one-time extra submissions call for a special issue, focusing on the sudden relationship that exists, like it or not, between Artificial Intelligence (AI) and human creators. The point of this call is to demonstrate that human creativity is vital and can not be replaced by AI, but it can free us from tedious tasks so we have more time to create. All proceeds from this issue are donated back by Speiser to support human writers in future issues.
We’re looking for submissions that demonstrate how AI can enhance human work, not replace it. Sending us a prompt straight from ChatGPT will not make it through our selections process. Instead, we want to see creative uses of AI. Original human work from another language translated to English by AI is an example. Using AI to generate a prompt an author writes from is an example. Writing a section of text and asking AI to respond with dialogue as a character might be an example. To make this clear, we are not looking for a body of AI generated work as is.
All pieces of poetry, prose and visual art will require the prompts used to generate them, be credited to the AI and the prompt author and include a small, 500 word or less statement on the personal experience of the prompt author on the experience.
We’re looking for: AI-involved pieces showcasing human ingenuity in the speculative genre. Works up to 3,000 words (5,000 max considered). Payment & Rights: Penny-per-word payment via PayPal + digital contributor copy. First print, electronic, and audio rights. Submit your work through Duotrope’s Duosuma Submissions Manager.
