The Fiction Desk - Short Story
Now open for submissions...
From now until the end of September, we're asking writers to submit short stories on a theme of 'Houses and Homes'. This is our first themed call for submissions, and there's plenty of opportunity for different approaches: from domestic dramas to haunted houses, from the political to the personal.
Submissions are made in the usual way, through our website. There's more information here: Stories about 'Houses and Homes'.
If you're looking for inspiration, here's a selection of recent news stories that relate to the theme in one way or another. (The Fiction Desk is based in the UK, so these have a British slant, but we welcome submissions from around the world.) And if you're not interested in this theme, we're open for general submissions too.
