Short Fiction Submissions

Submissions of short films

You have a short submission deadline every year. Thom Vowler talks about joining Unthank as a short fiction editor and what he is looking for in short fiction collections. Poesie & Kurzspielfilme now open. We have opened our submissions for three new print and eBook anthologies: Spirits, Horror & Science Fiction.

Submission " Short Fiction

Entries should be submitted in one fell swoop. To find out what kind of fiction we like, please order an older edition. Tales should not be longer than 5,000 words. We' ll get about 500 tales in one read series, so we not only ask you to read, but also ask you to send in your submissions at the same auctions. (However, please let us know immediately if a work has been approved elsewhere.

Our goal is to have all submissions ready within three months. For the first we also invite you to submit illustrations, again in printed form or on-line.


Please note that we have special rules for our short stories competitions and submissions. Each year we host two short stories competitions, the American Short(er) Fiction Competition in Winter/Spring and the Halifax Ranch Prize for Fiction in Spring/Summer, as well as the Insider Prize for incident scriptwriters in Texas. You can find the latest information about the competition on our homepage.

You will find below a policy for periodic submissions; please review this policy for all non-competition submissions. Enter here. Unasked submissions will be considered all year round. No fixed rules regarding contents and length. Feature films entered into the journal must be genuine and unedited. The ASF regards works that have been posted on-line (also on Facebook and blogs) as already out.

Just hand in one thing at a timeframe. Reimburse the $3 before you send in your work. At the moment we do not accept any hard copies. We will recycle all submitted papers upon receiving them. If the submissions are approved for publishing elsewhere, the authors will immediately cancel the submissions via the submissions page.
