Submissions

Great, you are thinking of submitting your story!

You can start by reading our back issues and having a look at the guidelines below. Breve New Stories publishes one short story and one flash fiction in every issue, from  new or emerging authors. We look for literary short fiction, for stories that have the power of condensing numbers of possibilities in the space of a few pages, fiction that speaks to real life and crucial, life-changing literary moments.
Breve welcomes and encourages diversity and it’s interested in beautifully written, carefully constructed and hard to forget short prose, regardless of the genre.

At the moment, we are considering Flash Fiction up to 600 words.

Submissions should be in English, original and unpublished. Email your stories as .doc, .pdf, .odt files including you contact details and a brief bio/CV/publication history to brevenewstories[at]gmail[dot]com.

There is no submission fee but note that at this stage we are not able to pay our contributors. While the submission window is open, response times vary from four to twelve weeks. Due to the large amount of submissions and the fact that we are a small team, we regret we are not able to provide individual feedback.
