The editors of Fiction Southeast are interested in short fiction (approximately 1500 words or less). Though we hope for creative and innovative writing, we don't prefer one particular style or genre of writing. The only criterion we look for is quality. Simultaneous submissions ARE welcome. Individual shorts should be approximately 1500 words or less. Submissions should be in .rtf, .doc, or .pdf format. Feel free to submit multiple stories, but please DO NOT submit multiple Word documents as one submission or one text document containing multiple stories. Instead, please submit each story as a SEPARATE submission (so that you complete an individual submission process for each story). We are also interested in interviews with authors of short-short fiction, articles concerning short-short fiction, as well as reviews of short story collections (preferably collections of flash or micro shorts). Authors retain all rights and copyright to their works. Fiction Southeast requests one-time, non-exclusive rights to publish your work. Like many journals, Fiction Southeast maintains a mailing list to ensure that readers and contributors are notified when new issues are published.The magazine is made up of volunteers, and though we do hope to pay writers in the future, we do not pay at this point.

Each month, the editors will select one short-short story (under 1,000 words). The winning story will grace the front page of the website for the entire month and will be listed on the Stories of the Month Page, as well as the Fiction Page. The reading fee will be $10, and the winner will receive $50 (we plan to increase the amount of the prize if we receive enough submissions, of course). We are currently getting between 15,000-20,000 visitors per month, so we're hoping the monthly award will provide writers with some much-needed visibility. Typically, the submission period will open on the first day of the month and close on the last day of the month. Stories submitted during the month of April (for example) will be judged at the end of April, and the winning story will appear throughout the month of May. We are now accepting submissions for the May award, so start sending your submissions now. Entries for the Story of the Month series should be approximately 1000 words or less. Submissions should be in doc or .pdf format. Feel free to submit multiple stories, but please DO NOT submit multiple Word documents as one submission or one text document containing multiple stories. Instead, please submit each story as a SEPARATE entry (so that you complete an individual submission process for each story). Submissions can be previously published or unpublished. Simultaneous submissions ARE welcome. All entries will be considered for publication in Fiction Southeast.

Inspired by George Orwell's famous essay, we are introducing a new series @ Fiction Southeast entitled "Why I Write." We are now accepting submissions for the series. Guidelines are fairly flexible. We simply want to know why you write. Who and what inspired you to become a writer? What keeps you motivated when the rejection letters begin to pile up? What are your objectives when you write? What are you trying to accomplish?

We've included a link to Orwell's essay below in case you need a little inspiration. We are particularly interested in submissions from writers we've previously published, but we're open to submissions from anyone who considers himself/herself a writer, so please encourage your students and colleagues to submit a piece.

Did the conference shape/change your view of reading/publishing/writing? Would you recommend the conference to others?
