“I could open the case, have a peek, and sneak out again. Just a peek. No one would know…”

Somewhere This Way

COVID update

After the pandemic forced us into a publishing hiatus in 2020, we're delighted to be back in action. Our next anthology will be published later this month, and we are now open for short fiction submissions for future volumes. To find out more, please sign up for our email newsletter using the box above.

In the meantime, our most recent anthology of new short stories is out now. It's called Somewhere This Way, and you can find out more, or order your own copy, here.

What is The Fiction Desk?

The Fiction Desk is an independent short story publisher, specialising in new fiction. Our regular anthologies include stories from debut and established authors, from the UK and around the world. We even publish the occasional ghost story. Find out more about The Fiction Desk here.

Submissions Opportunities

We welcome short story submissions from both new and established writers. If you'd like to send us your stories for potential publication, we strongly recommend reading our submissions guidelines and at least one of our anthologies before sending us your work.
