The Fiction Pool magazine

Recent Blog Posts

coming soon!


The Fiction Pool is a new online-only literary magazine.

Dip your toe into the pool with a poem or flash, or swim a length with a short story.

We are looking for fiction which is bold and daring. Fiction which is experimental, rebellious and dreamy.

We are not interested in therapeutic mood pieces which describe the sea and how it reflects our inner turmoil.

We want flash fiction which is under 1000 words, short stories which are under 2500 words and poems which are no longer than one sheet of A4. You can submit four poems, two flashes or one short story at a time.

Please read our submission guidelines carefully.

You can follow us on Twitter @TheFictionPool

We’d love to hear from you, so drop us a line at
