Taking Submissions: Eggplant Emoji Volume 4

May 6

Deadline: May 6th, 2024
Payment: $25 and a contributors copy
Theme: Hilarious short stories that are character-driven and culturally striking

Eggplant Emoji, the comedy literary journal is currently seeking previously-unpublished comedic short fiction submissions for its fourth volume.


Eggplant Emoji Volume 4 will be a print and eBook collection of hilarious short stories that are character-driven and culturally striking. We are not looking for essays; we want scenes with dialogue, and stories with a beginning, middle, and an end. For a better sense of what we’re looking for, check out previous Volumes of Eggplant Emoji, available on Amazon and Kindle Unlimited.

Submissions should be 1,000 – 7,000 word prose, with a comedic tempo of at least one witty line or funny moment per page, but ideally more than one. The intended audience will be 17+ and we encourage adult or sexual themes.

Submission Guidelines: We use a blind submission process. That means your name, email address, or any other identifying information should be absent from the pages of your .doc/.docx piece. Please title your work and reference it in the body of your email.

Simultaneous submissions are allowed, but please immediately advise us if your piece is accepted elsewhere. A maximum of 2 pieces will be accepted per person for consideration. Contributors will receive a $25 one-time payment and author copy per accepted piece.

Please send submissions to [email protected]

Deadline: Monday, May 6, 2024. Decisions will be rendered by Tuesday, July 30, 2024. Projected release date: September 3, 2024.

Via: Eggplant Emoji.
