$3000 Awarded Monthly

One of the largest awards open to unpublished writers, and the only one closed to professionals. Each month we hold a contest based on a short fiction prompt. One new author receives the grand prize. We also choose the best stories, pay the authors above-professional rates, and publish them in our magazine.

Free To Read

We are the first magazine to pay professional rates and only publish new writers. Read  stories by over 100 authors, completely free (and not filled with ads).

These are high quality stories by emerging talent. Each issue is themed, but we publish all genres. Guaranteed entertainment, without a subscription fee.

A Community of Writers

Collaborate with the entire community or join a small group of 5 to get support and feedback on your work. Or both!

We’re all in this to tell great stories.

The first magazine to pay professional rates and only accept submissions from new writers.
