Firewords is now accepting submissions for Issue 4…

Issue 4 is coming…

As things begin to wind down for Christmas (yeah right!), now might be the perfect time to spend some time on yourself and your writing. Submissions for Issue 4 of Firewords are open until January 9th for short stories (under 2000 words) and poetry. So, if your New Year’s resolution is ‘to get published in 2015’, here is your chance!

Our flash fiction challenge is also back and the best ones will be published in Issue 4. All the flash fiction stories must be under 400 words, and must include / be inspired by the following prompt: “When the snow finally stopped falling…”

Check out our submission guidelines for more details. We can’t wait to read (and hopefully publish) your work!

Still looking for the perfect gift for the short story fan in your life?

It may be Christmas day, but our Christmas bundles still make a lovely late gift or treat for yourself over the festive period. The bundles include all three Firewords issues, a hand-stamped bookmark and a blank gift tag. They come all wrapped up in festive ribbon and only cost £11 (with free UK delivery.) This is your last chance to get one of these, so don’t miss out!

Firewords Bundle

Have a great Christmas ShortStoppers and we will see you in early 2015 with Issue 4.

Firewords Issue 3 is here!

Firewords Issue 3

Hi there ShortStops! Hot off the press, the newest issue of Firewords features stories about life, love and letting go, as well as the usual striking visuals created by an array of talented illustrators, photographers and designers.

The new look of Issue 2 gained a wonderful reaction and this has encouraged us to retain the perfect-bound format which really does maximize the impact of the artistry inside. We are learning alongside the growth of the magazine, and are sure that Issue 3 is our best one yet! Get yourself a copy and let us know if you agree.

Also available in our brand new shop: The much requested subscriptions are back and we have special Christmas bundles for sale – only £11 with free UK delivery! Stocking filler anyone?

P.S. Submissions for Issue 4 will be opening in early December, so keep your eyes peeled!
