Information about your publication:
What type of submissions you are looking for:We particularly welcome the work of new and emerging writers. In the recent Best American Short Stories, of the top “100 distinguished short stories,” six appeared in Glimmer Train Stories, second only to the New Yorker. We are pleased to say that, of those six, two were those authors’ first stories accepted for publication.
Information on Contests:Our Short Story Award for New Writers is held quarterly in the months of February, May, August, and November. It is open to any writer whose fiction has not appeared in a publication with a circulation greater than 5000.
