Breve New Stories–Issue Two OUT NOW

It is time for new stories! The latest issue of Breve New Stories is finally out and you can read it HERE. 

In 2015, I launched the project for a new literary magazine that focused on one of my favourites genres: short fiction.

Breve New Stories presented a short story and a flash fiction piece in each issue, showcasing new voices from the UK.

Initially printed in the form of an agile, slim pamphlet by Footprint Workers in Leeds, it had an eco-friendly mind, and it was a homage to the long history of experimental literary magazines and zines.

As a self founded, mostly solitary endeavour, it has been difficult to keep up with the times, costs and efforts required by such a project. What fuelled it was the love for stories and the constant support from friends and authors that, against the odds, kept believing in this project and in me.

Since then, two issues and four authors have been published. Today, things have to change. It is with some sadness that I abandon the original print format in favour of a more cost effective and easy to distribute online magazine.  Despite it being displayed online, it will hopefully still convey the feeling of a printed magazine, and readers will be able to read it online, download an e-read version and why not? Print each issue on their house printer.

Breve New Stories will still feature a short story and a flash fiction in each issue but it will now be open to all authors writing in English, from all over the world. This is because, especially in our times, there is a renewed need for inclusion, for sharing stories beyond borders, for opening up to different narratives. Writing in English, many authors with diverse voices can bring their contribution. Submissions will be open again shortly after the launch of Issue Two so…stay tuned.

Read the summer tale of brotherhood and courage set in rural Scotland in Doubting Thomas and let the unexpected encounters surprise you in My New Best Friend.

Introducing authors Hamish McGee and Trudy Duffy-Wigman.

If you like what you read, please consider donating to Breve New Stories and supporting the project!
