Editorial Focus

Recommended Reading, a magazine by Electric Literature, publishes one story a week, each chosen by today’s best authors or editors. Each issue includes an editor’s note written by that week’s partner, introducing you to the work and their mission. In this age of distraction, we’re uncovering writing that’s worth slowing down and spending some time with. And in doing so, we’re giving great writers, literary magazines, and independent presses the recognition (and readership) they deserve.

Tips From the Editor

Recommended Reading publishes fresh, engaging fiction from emerging and established voices alike. Please read stories from our archive in order to get a feel for the type of fiction we publish (it's free, so there's no excuse not to!). We will do our very best to respond to your submission within three months. We do not accept paper submissions.
