The Lonely Crowd 45

About

The Lonely Crowd is a new magazine devoted to the short story. Its primary desire is to create a new space in which the short story form can flourish and as such it accepts unsolicited submissions and – in the case of the print edition – pays for them. We will also publish a small amount of high quality contemporary poetry as we believe that the two forms share a great deal in common. Likewise we are also looking for photographic work which informs and reveals in much the same way as a great piece of short fiction.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
