UPGRADED Cyborgs Racing to the Finish Line


  1. Neil,
    I am in the UK, and a fan of sci-fi.
    I am interested in helping out. Not sure what else to say.

    • Great! If you fill out the application in the link above, that will collect all the information we need to make a decision.

  2. M. Cross

    Is the prohibition against submitting to Clarkesworld for the duration of being a slusher, or is it permanent?

  3. Melissa Royer

    I would be interested in assisting you with this.

  4. KL

    Just wondering if these positions had been filled yet, and/or if those who have applied will be hearing back one way or the other.

    • Not yet. I’ll continue accepting applications for a few more days and then shut down the form.

      I will be emailing all applicants when a decision has been made.

  5. P. Solomon

    Are you still in the process of reviewing applicants?
