General Submissions for the Rendez-Vous

ATTN: All Writers. We're now accepting general submissions year-round at Short Édition!

We're looking for short stories, poems and children's stories to publish in our forthcoming publication series, Rendez-Vous, which will be a collection of selected works published on a monthly basis in both our Short Story Dispensers and on the website.

Temple University: Short Fiction Contest

Temple University published some fantastic "transformative" short fiction from their themed writing competition this past month, and their Dispensers are now showcasing these talented student and faculty writers across campus and beyond. We're thrilled at Short Édition to have had the opportunity to read these works and offer eight Temple writers a formal publishing contract. Be on the lookout for their stories and poems in your local Dispensers... coming soon!
