Electric Literature's Recommended Reading

There are presently no open calls for submissions.

Submissions will open on May 1, 2014.

Recommended Reading, a magazine by Electric Literature, publishes one story a week, each chosen by today’s best authors and editors. Though Recommended Reading features original fiction as well as reprints, we will only consider previously unpublished stories during our spring submission period.

Before submitting, please take some time to read Recommended Reading, especially the first issue in every volume, in which we showcase original fiction recommended by Electric Literature. Recommended Reading publishes fiction ranging in length from 2,000 to 10,000 words, and pays each contributor $300. We accept simultaneous submissions, but if your story is accepted elsewhere, please withdraw it immediately through the Submittable system. We can only consider one story by an author at any given time.
