From the Aoife's Kiss guidelines:

Aoife's Kiss publishes short stories, poetry, art/illustrations, and articles [including book and movie reviews] in the following genres: science fiction and fantasy, including some dark fantasy. These genres include several subgenres, among them sword & sorcery, steampunk, slipstream, interstitial, and cyberpunk. The point to remember here is that, for us, if it falls into the Big Three, we want to see it. We are not overly concerned about specific subgenres.

Aoife's Kiss considers original short stories of lengths between 2,000 - 10,000 words [if your story is longer, please query].

Aoife's Kiss considers original poetry of up to 100 lines [if your poem is longer, please query].

Aoife's Kiss considers articles related to science, science fiction, fantasy, sword & sorcery, mythology, folklore, and the history of any of these. Preferred length is under 2000 words, but that is not firm. If in doubt, submit it.
