Editorial Focus

The Fictional Café is a nonprofit literary magazine that publishes short fiction (short stories, novel excerpts), poetry, fine art, audiobooks and audio dramas.

All submissions are considered for our print anthology as well as for nomination for Pushcart Prize awards.

We also offer a two-year Residency Program for poets and fiction writers who excel in their field and demonstrate a strong desire to take their writing careers to the next level. Residents' work will be featured prominently on our site and in our anthology.

Tips From the Editor

The Fictional Café seeks submissions from writers and poets of all different backgrounds in all styles and genres to celebrate the creativity of the world and the unifying power that an online café can foster.
