Editorial Focus

Small World City is a Dhaka, Bangladesh-based online literary magazine looking for speculative stories—in the very different forms they take. They publish fiction, non-fiction, poetryart, and philosophy. They are looking for the strange, the irreverent, the niche, the stories that eschew reality. Ghosts, freaks, punks, outcasts, gangsters, martians, manhunters, detectives, astronauts, and argonauts.

Tips From the Editor

We are looking for speculative stories—this is a broad, almost unlimited category entailing anything that pushes back against realist fiction. How much you want to push is wholly up to you. We welcome entirely imagined realms, as well as worlds precisely like our own, barring one small change. Give us the unnatural, the preternatural, the antinatural, however way it comes.
