About

Superlative, The Short Story Literary Journal, was founded by Ross Turner in 2020. We publish quality work by emerging short story writers, in order to promote new, developing authors and the art of the short story to readers worldwide. We are delighted with every piece we publish, but our main aim is to nurture emerging talent and newly-established writers, to keep writing alive for future generations.
