About

Quick Fiction publishes stories and narrative prose poems of 500 words or less. Since 2001, when it was founded, the journal has released issues every spring fall. The Boston Globe recently ranked Quick Fiction #4 among 100 New England literary magazines. Boston’s Weekly Dig has called it “a journal filled with great work from writers who respect the rigid, potentially gorgeous contours of microfiction and have a great deal to say in very little time.”

Fiction Closed

Quick Fiction publishes anything you could possibly imagine under 500 words (more or less). We don’t discriminate by any genre, style, or other arbitrary criteria (except approximate word count). As long as your submission is stunningly simple, handily baroque, or transcendently irreverent, or is otherwise brilliant, beautiful, and/or completely revolutionary, it should be an easy shoo-in.

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.
