Guidelines for Submissions

Your baristas are interested in all genres of short fiction, poetry, excerpts from novels, photographs, art, and audio or video podcasts. We encourage you to share your work for publication in the Fictional Café. The three of us review your work and select the best pieces to publish. Your submissions must be original material. We promptly acknowledge all submissions, but we usually don’t offer editorial advice. You’re welcome to revise and resubmit one time. Work we accept will be published here in the Café, and becomes eligible  for publication in our annual print and ebook anthology.

The Fictional Café is a non-profit labor of love, so we are unable to provide compensation for submissions.

We’re sticklers about your following these Guidelines for Submission simply because it makes the process more manageable and efficient. Please follow them to a T.

And thanks a lot!
