About Breve

Breve: from the Italian brief, short – racconto breve, short story.  BREVE-LOGO

Breve New Stories is about brevity, it’s about literature, it’s about a brave way of telling stories and of reading.

Breve believes short stories are vibrant and alive. However, as a literary form they are often overlooked by mainstream publishers and we’ve noticed that short story collections rarely win top literary prizes or climb bestseller charts. Breve aims to challenge these tendencies by investing in short stories and their authors, publishing a fresh, new literary magazine and creating opportunities for writers to share their experiences with a wider audience.

Breve New Stories is a little magazine:

The term “little magazine” can be applied to a range of different publications, but here it is used to suggest a literary magazine, usually produced without concern for immediate commercial gain, and with a guiding enthusiasm for contemporary literature, especially poetry. A little magazine may champion work by a very small number of authors, or a particular style, or attempt to provide a cross-section of what its editor sees as the contemporary scene.
