Call for Submissions: Short Fiction in Theory and Practice

Dear colleagues,

The academic journal Short Fiction in Theory and Practice is interested in receiving translations into English of short stories from any language: see the message below for further details. For any queries or to submit a story for consideration, please contact Ailsa Cox:


We accept submissions up to 8000 words. Published work is fine, so long as there are no copyright problems; as an academic journal, we don’t pay contributors, and couldn’t afford copyright payments. We’d also be interested in articles on translating short stories or interviews with writers from other languages. It is a peer reviewed journal, so any young translators who are producing good work might want to add this to their CV.

Our third issue will be linked to the Figure of the Author conference recently co-hosted with the University of Angers in France, and the deadline will be September; any translations of stories which include an author character would be especially welcome. But in any case we are always looking for high quality submissions which can be sent in at any time of year.

Ailsa Cox,
Reader in English and Writing,
Edge Hill University,
