Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions. We provide the following information as an archive.


Survival By Storytelling Magazine (or SBS Magazine) publishes quality fiction and poetry by young authors. It is run by Young Writers Survival By Storytelling will accept poetry, short fiction, and short plays. Any genre is acceptable.
FICTION: We want well written fiction in any genre. Stories that make us think, scare us, intrigue and interest us, and otherwise entertain us are what we’re looking for.
POETRY: For poetry we want thought provoking, powerful poems with good imagery. Abstract poetry is perfectly fine with us, provided it’s not too abstract. Rhyme or don’t rhyme, doesn’t matter. If the poem grips us, we’ll take it.

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.
  • For novel/collection publishers, it is standard to submit a cover letter, synopsis, and sample instead of the full manuscript. Do this unless otherwise instructed.
  • Include a SASE with all mailed submissions, queries, and requests for guidelines, unless the editor replies via or email or guidelines state otherwise.
  • Be professional, patient and persistent.
