New Short Stories

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Now reading for Willesden Herald: New Short Stories 11

We are open till September 30 for submissions to the latest in our series of short story anthologies, featuring the best new writing from around the world. 

You can find examples of what we like in our back issues and also in our Story of the Month features, as well as in the periodicals listed under Links. We're generally looking for literary fiction not genre stories. 

The only payment we can offer at this time is two copies of the book when it is published.  Full details are set out in the submission form area below.

"Willesden Herald: New Short Stories 11" will be published simultaneously in the US and UK in early 2020 and will be available from the main online booksellers by print on demand. We can also do print runs on favourable terms when bulk orders are requested.

See our New Short Stories blog and The Willesden Herald for updates and features that may be of interest.
