Long Story, Short Journal exists to serve writers. We were established in 2012 in order to provide a home to longer short stories within the Irish and international publishing scene where word limits are often 3000 words or less. Within such limitations, how can writers strike more than one note or create work with intricacy and complexity?
After years of trying to gain funding for paying writers via ‘tip jars’ and funding applications, we’re moving on to our readership with a crowdfunding drive. We acknowledge that not everyone can afford subscription fees, so we’re keeping the journal free to read. For those who have a little spare change, please check out our Indiegogo page!
There’s a special perk going out to those who donate €20 or more: ‘Sunset Drinking the Black Ocean’, a digital anthology of diminutive forms such as flash fiction, portraits and prose poems–all by former Long Story, Short Journal contributors including Mary Morrissy, John McKenna, Danielle McLaughlin and Matthew Sweeney.
