Short Fiction Prize 2017 Jan 3

Short Fiction is one of the UK’s best regarded literary magazines. Its ten highly acclaimed annual print issues were produced by Antony Caleshu and Tom Vowler from 2007-2017. Originally supported by the University of Plymouth, these beautifully illustrated Short Fiction coversjournals feature stories by Kevin Barry, Helen Oyeyemi, Alison McLeod, Marina Warner, Kit de Waal, Colin Barrett, Ríona Judge McCormack, Inderjeet Mani, and many more

In our new incarnation, we are delighted to have the support of the Department of Literature, Film, and Theatre Studies (LiFTS) at the University of Essex.

We currently live online, publishing one Featured Story per month, maintaining the magazine’s commitment to the very highest standards in short fiction. We have always been “the visual literary journal”, interested in a dialogue between visual and written art, so we work with artists to provide bespoke front-illustration for each published piece. 

Submissions are accepted 1 April-31 December. From January to March, entries are invited for the Short Fiction/University of Essex Prize – £500 first prize. All details at http://www.shortfictionjournal.co.uk/competition

Editorial Board: Ruby Cowling // Agri Ismaïl // Naush Sabah // Jonathan Crane // Liam Harkin // Maria Thomas // Emma Kittle
