    Second Hand Stories is an up-and-coming podcast where we plan to read short works of fiction submitted by our listener community. Our goals are twofold: we would like to give new and under-published writers an opportunity for their works to be heard, and we would like to bring fiction back to its original form as an oral tradition in an affordable alternative to audiobook services. We’re looking for any genre of fiction (no poetry) and our word limit is flexible (preferably between 2,000 and 6,000 words). Check out our episodes at secondhandpodcast.com!

    The Sonder Review Now Seeking Submissions for Fall 2016 Issue

    • Deadline info Submissions accepted year-round.
    • Genre Fiction, Nonfiction, Art, Photography
    • Type Magazine

    The Sonder Review is currently seeking submissions of fiction, creative nonfiction, and art. We believe in prose that strikes and sparks. Words raw and shuddering and unabashed. Language both spare and piercing, delicately and deliberately crafted. We believe in storytelling that is innovative and daring, precise and oddly angled. Writing which shows us the bizarre and magical and profound; which shows us a self we have never seen and truth we have never known. But above all, we want fresh and ringing voices. Words that must be heard. Please visit our website for our submissions guidelines and past issues. www.sonderreview.com

    Seeking Imperfect Fiction

    • Deadline info Submissions accepted year-round.
    • Genre Fiction
    • Type Literary Site

    Many journals ask you to submit your best work. The new website Imperfect Fiction seeks work you don't quite understand—work you've struggled with but seems to have merit, work that seems to be a mistake but a mistake you're inexplicably drawn toward, the one story that no journal has been willing to publish. Imperfect Fiction prefers nontraditional forms and does not require a polished surface. We are particularly interested in Chicago-area writers. Work will be published as it is accepted; the publishing process is more like a blog than a journal. To submit, visit: www.imperfectfiction.com/submit.
