Fiction by Emerging Writers
To access the full archive of New Voices stories, click here.
Our New Voices category is open to any author who has not published a novel-length work. You must not have a novel forthcoming at the time of submission. Published short-story collections do not count as a novel-length work and those authors are free to submit. New Voices are published online and will feature a number of stories from new authors each month. This category aims to expose readers to new voices and talents. Our submissions guidelines are listed below.
Our New Voices authors are paid $200 for short fiction and narrative non-fiction, and $100 for flash fiction up to 1,000 words. We are thrilled to be paying for published pieces but will be highly selective in our choices for publication.
- New Voices submissions are open to new and emerging writers only (no novel-length published work forthcoming at the time of submission).
- We accept fiction and narrative non-fiction. We do accept a variety of genres and styles, our only requirement is that you show excellence in your craft. We want to be wowed. Bend genres, experiment with structure, and write your heart out. But please, send us polished work. Our aim is to showcase writers who we believe will continue to produce great work. Send us only your best.
- We accept simultaneous submissions but please notify us if your work is picked up elsewhere.
- We only accept previously unpublished work.
- All submissions must be less than 7,000 words.
- We do accept multiple submissions.
