call for fiction and nonfiction: Samuel Literary Messenger
- The Samuel Literary Messenger will contain short stories, essays, or
excerpts from longer works, split roughly half and half between
fiction and nonfiction. There'll be a small run of hand-made copies of
each issue and a pdf or ebook for sale online, priced only to recoup
costs. The pieces will also be rolled out on our website one per week
after publication of the physical copies. Issues wont be on any
regular schedule, but instead be released based on strength of
submissions and how long it takes to produce the books.
Contributors will be paid $50 per published piece and receive a
physical copy of the issue in which it appears. Previously unpublished
work only. Simultaneous submissions are fine as long as we're notified
of any being accepted elsewhere.
If you'd like to submit one or more pieces, email them to
(replace (at) with @ in sending e-mail)
Include a short bio with an
introduction/cover letter, and please state whether each piece is
fiction or nonfiction.
