We are OPEN for Short Story Submissions!

Hagstone Publishing is accepting short story submissions for our monthly First Sunday Short Fiction blog feature.

Submission Guidelines:

  • We encourage submissions by women authors, authors of color, authors with disabilities, pagan authors, and members of the LGBTQA+ community.

  • We are hungry for character driven stories with diverse voices.

  • Stories should be between 700 and 2500 words.

  • We accept most speculative fiction, including fantasy, sci-fi, magical realism, and some horror. (We prefer our horror eerie and atmospheric rather than gory or gratuitously violent.) We don't accept romance or erotica.

How to Submit:

  • Email your submission to submit@hagstonepublishing.com.

  • Use the subject line FSSF Submission YOUR NAME.

  • Include your story in the body of the email; no attachments will be accepted.

  • Also include a brief bio and up to three links to your social media pages or website.


  • $5 per accepted story, paid via Paypal.

  • Promotion in the form of a bio and links to your author page or other social media sites.

  • The opportunity to pitch one full-length manuscript for publishing consideration. At present this is the only way to submit a manuscript to Hagstone Publishing.

If your story is accepted, we will send an acceptance letter and guidelines for manuscript submission within 30 days.
