The Short List

Size Matters.
Writers Know.


When searching for places to submit shorter works, word count is key. This compilation lists journals that publish prose of 3,000 words or under.

Word count and paid $$ markets are about the only details provided here. Why? Because it’s best to review the publications’ guidelines for info such as genre or theme preferences, fees and submission windows. We do not list contests as they tend to come and go, nor most anthologies, unless they publish multiple volumes. Please send an email if you find journals on the Short List to be defunct. Now, go get published!
