Short Fiction is a high-quality online journal (previously also in print, since 2006), publishing some of the finest short stories from around the world. Many of our authors are long celebrated, others we’ll take credit for as our discovery. We also publish original art work, as we enjoy the possibilities of dialogue between literature and the visual arts, and want to support all forms of collaborative artistic practice.

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.
