Editorial Focus

We love short shorts. Flash is fantastic. But as the great short story is shrinking to 3000 words or less in many literary journals, we've begun to wonder Where have all the long short stories gone? The Long Story, Short Journal is the home of stories 4000 words or longer. One story will be published every month. Think of us as the literary equivalent of the slow food movement.

Tips From the Editor

Under no circumstances send chapters from novels, or whole novellas. Long short stories are different creatures entirely.
