Submit your short fiction for publication!
The Writer's Beard is currently seeking short fiction by authors and fans of the site. Well written and polished submissions are welcome from any genre. See the details below to find out how to submit your work.
Length: Between 500 and 5000 words
Payment: Unfortunately we are unable to offer payment at this time.
Podcast: Once your story has been selected for publication you have the option to have it read on The Writer's Beard Podcast. This is not a guarantee that all published stories will be selected for recording, but if I like the story enough to publish it, there is a good chance I will like it enough to do a recording.
No reprints please: We only accept original, unpublished work. The Writer's Beard acquires first-time electronic publication rights and recording rights if applicable. These rights revert back to the author upon publication.
Fill out the form to submit your short fiction story. Simply copy and paste your story into the section below.
NOTE:Keep in mind that formatting can change when pasting documents. Take a few moments to check the formatting of your story before submitting.
* Submissions are open to any genre. However, depictions of graphic sexual violence, rape, incest, excessive gore, etc, will not be considered for publication. Horror, violence, blood and strong language are fine as long as they serve the story. No torture porn.
