THE SOUTH CIRCULAR, the short story ejournal is seeking submissions for issue 10



For issue 10 of THE SOUTH CIRCULAR, authors may submit their work to submissions@thesouthcircular.com between 20 March and 7 April. Purchasing the journal to see if you story will be suitable is  highly recommended.

Submission Guidelines

Submitted stories should be formatted as follows:

→ Calibri, double-spaced

→ Font size: 12pt

→ New paragraphs should be identified by indenting the first line (by using the TAB key)

→ New sections should be identified by inserting a line space or a * between paragraphs

→ Do not indent the beginning of each new section

→ Black text on white background

→ Unjustified

→ Number all pages

In addition:

• The word limit for submitted stories is 2,500 words.

• Please submit your story, as an attachment and in the body of the text, by email only, addressed to The Editor, and sent to submissions@thesouthcircular.com.

• All submissions should include a short author biographical note. When we say short, we mean 3 or 4 sentences. When we say sentences, we mean snappy and syntactically correct sentences. We don’t need your CV/resume! If your story is published, this biographical note will be published in full.

• And, we’d rather not receive a photo of you.

• THE SOUTH CIRCULAR enlists the expertise and opinions of a select reader panel. While all submissions are read by the editor, each member of the reader panel receives a limited number of stories to read in each quarter. You may not agree with the editor’s decision, but it is final.

• We ask that your story be unpublished at and up to 12 months after the publication of the issue of THE SOUTH CIRCULAR in which it appears.

• Copyright remains, in all cases, with the author.

• Unfortunately, THE SOUTH CIRCULAR cannot provide a feedback/editorial service.

• Writers may be from, or resident, anywhere in the world but all stories must be written in English.

• Only one story may be submitted at a time. If your story is not published in the upcoming issue, it’s always possible we’re just keeping it for a later issue.

• And, unless we really, really, really like your work, it’s unlikely that we will publish more than one of your stories in any one year.

• THE SOUTH CIRCULAR is an e-journal of short stories ONLY. We do not review/criticize work. Please don’t ask us to.
