The Forge Literary Magazine was founded by volunteers from the Fiction Forge, an international online writers’ forum, which counts amongst its members and alumni winners of numerous literary awards, including the Commonwealth Short Story Prize, the Bridport Prize, the Bristol Short Story Prize and the Pinch Literary Award in Fiction. Former members’ novels have been published by Bloomsbury, Chatto & Windus, Sceptre, Headline and Little, Brown.
Tips From the Editor
We will open to fee-free submissions on the first of each month and close when we reach our quota, except for September and December.
Our staff shares editorial duties equally, we pay our contributors, and our taste is wide-ranging and eclectic.
