After Dinner Conversation publishes short stories (1,500-8,000 words), of any genre, that ask interesting ethical and/or philosphical questions in a narrative format.  Basically, we are looking for The Trolley Problem written as a piece of compelling short story fiction.

It is strongly suggested you read our submission guidelines first.  Our guidelines contain information that keep your submission from being being automatically deleted.  Even though we accept any genre, there is a very specific niche we are looking for.

Sky Island Journal is an independent, international, free-access literary journal; we are dedicated to discovering and publishing the finest original poetry, flash fiction, and creative nonfiction. We publish accomplished, well-established authors—side by side—with fresh, emerging voices. We provide our readers with a powerful, focused, advertising-free literary experience that transports them: one that challenges them intellectually and moves them emotionally.

We want to be the first publication to give your writing a clean, powerful, international platform with a diverse readership. What are we looking for? We don’t want to limit our readers; therefore, we don’t want to limit you. We know quality work when we experience it. We don’t mean to be coy, but you need to know that we’re not interested in making your art conform to some preconceived aesthetic. We’re neither presumptuous enough, nor pretentious enough, to proclaim what "won’t fit" before we even try it on. Send us your best. We have over 80,000 readers in 145 countries, and they are hungry for the best new writing.

Chiron Review presents the widest possible range of contemporary creative writing – fiction and non-fiction, traditional and off-beat, in a perfect-bound, softcover format, including art and photography. We have published many well-known writers, but our focus is on up-and-coming new writers. We look for unpretentious literature that is accessible beyond the ivory towers of academia and outside the bounds of religious or politically correct restrictions. We celebrate ecclectism, diversity, honesty and humor.

Be familiar with the market and follow submission guidelines.
