Filibuster now accepts pieces of fiction in our new and exciting literature section. If you’re an aspiring young writer with a creative flare, then this is just the place for you. Whether it’s a short story or a poem, we want to showcase your talent to an ever-growing audience.

What we’re looking for

  • We want short stories of roughly 800-1500 words* and poems of any length, in a Word document (or similar format).
  • You are not required to write to a specific theme.
  • We take pride in the standard of the work we publish, so we expect all pieces to be to a high standard of spelling, punctuation and grammar.
  • The piece can be one you have written previously or one written from scratch.
  • If your piece has been published elsewhere, we ask that you ensure you/we have the right to re-publish.
  • Obviously, we ask that the piece was created by you alone, unless you are submitting with a co-author.

*If the piece is substantially longer, it can be split into two/several parts and be published as a series.

How do I submit a piece?

Now you know what we want, you can go ahead and submit your story or poem. To do so, send an email to [email protected] including the following details:

  • Your name (If you wish to use a pseudonym, we are willing to facilitate this)
  • Your age
  • A short biography
  • The title of your piece
  • The genre of your piece
  • Any relevant comments

Then send the email with the document as an attachment. We aim to get back to you within three days; if we don’t please feel free to give us a gentle nudge.

OR: If you wish to write for us regularly, please head over to our Join page, and follow the instructions there.

I look forward to reading your work.

Henry Davies,
Literary Editor
