“is keen to provide exposure for writers by offering them a place where their work will be seen and read in a high quality, respected setting. The site receives about half a million unique visitors per month, so successful submissions are likely to be viewed by more readers than in almost any other short story publication. In addition, the site receives attention from agents, the press, film makers, schools, universities and other publishers.
Note that our editorial standards are high and we do not publish all the submissions we receive. If necessary, editors work with authors of successful submissions prior to placing the story on the site.
Accepted authors receive a page on the site where readers can access all the author’s stories as well as biographical or event information, story background and links. Any comments posted to the site relating to your submission will be made available to you.
We do not require exclusive use of your submission – in fact, our comments system and author pages provide not only a focus for readers and reader feedback, but also a point for other publishers to contact you. All work can be removed within two weeks of you contacting us if this becomes necessary.
This is a short story site – we do not accept extracts from novels (except where the piece is complete in itself) or works in progress. Rather than set specific word limits, we are interested in receiving any pieces that authors consider to be in the form of a short story. ”
