Short FICTION appears annually in the autumn, publishing some of the finest short stories from around the world.
Many of our authors are long celebrated, others we’ll take credit for as our discovery. We take special care to prepare each writer’s work with bespoke front-illustration and within its own chapbook of space. Our aim is to foster an interdisciplinary dialogue between literature and the visual arts, exploring the potential for collaborative artistic practice. In short, we believe the literary journal should be a thing of beauty.
See our back issues for stories by Kevin Barry, Helen Oyeyemi, Brad Watson and Marina Warner. Our current issue includes fiction by Deborah Eisenberg, Alison Moore, Graham Mort, Alex Preston and Mariko Nagai.
