Taking Submissions: The Forge Literary Magazine

August 31, 2019

Deadline: August 31st, 2019
Payment: $50

Our Process

The Forge Literary Magazine publishes one prose piece per week selected by a rotating cast of editors. Each submission is read blind by two editors. If a story is chosen to move forward, it is read by one of two rotating Editors of the Month who each make final decisions on the stories they receive. Since we are a diverse, international group of writers, our tastes and styles are wide-ranging. Read more about us here.

Fiction and Nonfiction

We prefer stories below 3,000 words but will consider work of rare quality up to 5,000 words. We love flash and micro prose. Please send one previously unpublished piece per category and wait to hear from us before submitting another. Reprints are by solicitation only. Literary excellence is our only criteria. We are open to all genres and  voices, and stories with any background, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual  and personal identity from all over the world.  We accept and encourage simultaneous submissions, but please withdraw promptly via Submittable if your piece is accepted elsewhere. We read our submissions anonymously. Our submission manager will ensure that your contact info is connected to your work. Please do not put your name anywhere in the file.Please do not inquire about the status of your submission until three months has passed. If you are a former contributor, please wait at least six months before  you submit again; we only publish one piece per contributor per year.

Payment and Rights

We pay, upon publication, $50 flat regardless of length. We request exclusive  worldwide English language rights to publish in the Forge Literary  Magazine, an online journal, for a period of three months, after which  all rights revert to the author. Authors outside the U.S. must be able  to receive payment via Paypal.
