Chris Fielden Just thought I'd update you since they're listed on your website! Chris Fielden You’d have to review each publishers’ submission guidelines and see what they say. I have written a story entitled "The Hidden Baby" with a little less than 10,000 words. I've now written 20 novels, and had 8 published as Print on Demand - but no agent has ever read anything I've done - they just won't accept submissions. Hi Penny. I then lived in SA and sold a lot of short stories there. And then there's something called the Submission Calendar for Writing Contests, Grants, etc. Thanks. If nothing else, you might be able to find out which agencies they use and then approach them as a freelancer. A great list - not only very useful for finding possible publishers but also gives a great picture of how alive and varied the scene is. The best bet is to look through the lists of short story magazines above and lists of short story competitions. Chris Fielden The New Yorker does pay for some pieces, but we haven’t seen any information about pay for short stories. There are a lot of magazines listed on this page that you could approach, but you will have to do some research. Don't be disheartened. Srijaya.

Jesse C Hi Chris, thanks for all the work on the site - it's really helpful. Hi Kabir. But if the turnaround time is longer than this I tend to submit elsewhere anyway. I convey my gratitude. The annual competition is open for entry from the beginning of April until then end of September. Chris Fielden Chris Fielden This is very helpful to me. For example, The New Yorker tends to only accept stories from more established writers, and that might also be the case for some of the other magazines. Chris, have you heard of Threshold website? You could also try Albedo One who also run a competition that states horror as one its genres. I found this very helpfull. 1,500 to 3,500 words for fiction - they also accept poetry and non-fiction - each issue is themed, so check the website for current details - the people who run this website are in the USA, but also in China, Germany, Japan, and the UK (author Rebecca Henderson has written about being published by BLYNKT - read Rebecca's advice and story here), 4,000 words max for previously unpublished, 6,000 words max for reprints - Unlike most online literary magazines I’ve come across, Pinball compensates writers for their published works. There's a lot on Twitter about this at the moment. Do you run a short story magazine? This will allow us to include a wider variety of material (but this is a guide rather than an absolute policy - we would still publish longer pieces if they merited publication). One Story is just that - a publication that puts out a single short story every three to four weeks. Thanks a lot. Thank you for your comment. Thanks Naima! Read some back issues and see if your writing fits, then submit. You might be better off approaching larger publishers, as I guess they are more likely to want books translated into foreign languages. Thirteen years later, there came another first — the first of many stories she published in The New Yorker (“A Watcher of the Dead”). InkTears also publish a wide variety of authors, so their annual competition is worth a look too. Gordimer published her very first short story, “Come Again Tomorrow,” in a Johannesburg magazine in 1938, when she was just 15 years old. Sarah You'll need to approach the magazines directly if you want to explore supplying copies to schools. So magazines are probably a better bet for you. I will try and keep the list up to date, but please check the submission requirements and submission dates on the different magazine’s websites before contacting them, as they do vary. So if you can direct me to a source, I would deeply appreciate it.
