About

The premise of the journal is to expand the notion of what stories are while shaking up the labels we use to define them. Rather than categorize by type of story (we accept all types of stories), the three sections of the journal are Truth, Untruth, and We Don't Know and They Won't Tell Us. Because we believe stories are lurking everywhere, we are actively looking for unique modes of storytelling that fall outside conventional boundaries while still maintaining the core essence of "story." Then again, we're also open to a traditional story that's simply very well told.

Fees Notice: This project charges fees (or requires purchases) for some submissions. They charge fees for "tip jar" submissions and some reading periods.

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.
