Short Story

If you’d like help with your short story, I offer an editing service that will take your short story to the next level.

From copy-editing to character advice, I give detailed feedback on what’s working and what needs to be improved in your story.

Read more and contact me.

As of July 2015, 80 of the top 100 journals accept online submissions.

Of those 80, 43 charge reading fees.

I would strongly advise you to submit first to the journals without submission fees, submit reluctantly to those that charge fees, and never submit to anyone that charges more than $3 (unless it’s a contest where the prize is $1000 or greater).

I hope this list makes submitting to literary magazines a little easier.

Lastly, look below this article to find some other lists here at Bookfox which might be interesting.

If you know a journal that isn’t mentioned here, please leave it in the comments section.

The journals are listed in a rough order from the heavy-hitters down to the indie.
