Fiction Attic Press accepts submissions of flash fiction, short stories, and personal essays. If we accept your story, we will publish it on the Fiction Attic website (, on Fiction Attic Medium, and possibly on Beacon. We seek to give your work the widest possible readership and to link to your website, social media, or Medium account. Your submission may also be considered for publication in a print anthology. Please see below for submission categories and use the appropriate submission form.

We are seeking thoughtful, well-written essays and short memoir. When you submit your work, you acknowledge that we may publish it either online, in print, or both.

We particularly seek essays for our anthology, Modern American Essays. For this anthology, we DO accept previously published work, as long as you let us know where and when it was originally published. 

We feel that a lot of serious work is overlooked by the major anthologies. With this anthology, we seek to fill that gap.
$ 2.99 - 5.99

We seek to help authors reach new audiences. After publication, you retain the rights to publish your story in other journals or in your own book. We accept previously published stories, as long as you own the rights; please let us know in your cover letter if the story was previously published. 

We are happy to link to your website or social media profile in order to help you further engage with your readers.
