Information about your publication
Big Fiction celebrates the soul of the long story: generous, transportive, and a little wild. We’re an independent journal publishing ambitious and delicious fiction twice a year, in hand-designed letterpress issues.
What type of submissions are you looking for?
Big Fiction is looking for long stories and novellas with substance, texture, urgency. We especially love to read prose that matters, in language crafted to sing off the page. We welcome both experimental and traditional narratives.
