About The Fiction Desk
The Fiction Desk is an independent publisher of new short stories.
Our anthologies are published three times a year, and feature a range of general fiction from the UK and abroad. The series also includes New Ghost Stories, an annual collection of supernatural fiction.
We take pride in seeking out new talent and regularly publish debut stories, as well as work by more established writers. All of our authors are paid for their stories and we ask only for the rights we need to publish our anthologies.
Our anthologies are available by subscription. Individual books are also available to purchase, either from this website or from your local bookshop.
We are currently running Academic Inspiration, a project to encourage the new generation of writers and readers to engage with short stories. For more information, see here.
To stay informed about our projects, please sign up to our monthly newsletter.
