Storgy Magazine is a UK-based online magazine that seeks to publish and promote exceptional literary fiction whilst providing authors with the opportunity to reach a wider literary audience. We take pride in discovering new and emerging talent, whilst also celebrating the work of established writers. 

STORGY welcomes unsolicited submissions from published and unpublished authors. They are looking for literary short fiction, particularly short stories which challenge literary conventions and experiment with genre, style, form and content. They consider all genres and welcome all submissions. “We want writing which forces the reader to face the reality in which we live, or the illusions in which we hide. We want soul, be it broken or bruised, or endless and almighty. We want to laugh, cry, cower, and applaud. Tell us, teach us, transform us.”

For flash fiction, 500 words maximum; for short stories, 5.000 words maximum.

STORGY also publishes essays and reviews, art illustrations and photography, and editorials that focus on cultural interests.
