Short stories online

Submission Guidelines

We accept stories of between 500 and 2,500 words that have not been previously published elsewhere, either in print or online (including your own blog and social media).

We like to publish authors from all over the world but submissions must be in English.

Simultaneous submissions are welcome but please let us know straight away if your work is accepted elsewhere.

Please submit only one piece at a time and wait for a response before submitting further material.

Submit your story as a Word document attachment (.doc, .docx files) to and write ‘Submission’ followed by the story title in the subject title of your email. No PDFs and please do not paste your story in the body of your email.

Our ideal submission is presented in a simple typeface with 1.5 or double spacing and numbered pages. Don’t forget to include your name and word count on the document header.

Please add a brief biography of no more than 50 words written in the third person with links that you would like to be included.

Punctuation and spelling will be edited to conform to house style. Substantial edits will be discussed with authors.

If you are an illustrator or photographer wishing to submit material please contact us at
