E-mail your creative submission to editor@fewerthan500.com for consideration.  Send your written work (short fiction or creative non-fiction) in Microsoft Word, or Word compatible format (.txt or .rtf are accepted, not PDF). FewerThan500 accepts submissions of unpublished, original fiction or creative non-fiction. FewerThan500 reserves the right to reject any submission. Authors are requested to submit no more than one story per month.

Please include a short bio (50 words or less) with any submission.

If you do not hear back from the editor within one month of submitting your story, assume that your story was not accepted for publication.  If the editor reads your story later and wants to publish it, she will e-mail you to ask if it is still available for publication. Please do not e-mail the editor to ask if your story is still under consideration. Publishing this site is a labor of love published by a sole editor. Your submissions are appreciated, even if you don’t get a response.

FewerThan500 is open to simultaneous submissions, but requests that you send a notification e-mail if your work has been sent and/or accepted elsewhere.

Please e-mail Ritta M. Basu, editor, editor@fewerthan500.com with any suggestions or comments you have about FewerThan500.com. We welcome your feedback! Please put the word “feedback” in the subject line.
