“Sitting up in the dark, he took a deep breath and scented a familiar, beguiling trace in the air…”
— Deep Green Leaves, Alex Clark
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 in May 2021, 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.
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.
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.
