Recommended Reading, a magazine by Electric Literature, publishes one story a week: a piece of original fiction, or a story chosen by today’s best authors or editors. Each issue includes a personal foreword by that week’s editor or partner. 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. After four weeks of free reading, our stories move behind a paywall, but if you become a member, you have full access to our archives, and year-round open submissions. We will do our very best to respond to your submission within three months. We do not accept paper submissions.
