The Dalloway Prize



What we want:

We will keep this brief, because we know submission guidelines can be tedious for professional writers who have to read so many.

We accept fiction, flash fiction and poetry.

We accept high-quality, beautifully written literary fiction. We will also accept slight magical realism themes if the writing is exceptional.

Please send: 

2 poems of up to 30 lines.
2 flash fiction pieces of up to 500 words
1 short story of up to 7,000

NO horror, thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy or other genre work. No erotica, homophobia, or any other offensive material.

We publish monthly issues of two short stories, four poems and four flash fiction pieces as e-books and print editions. 

We send thoughtful, encouraging, lovely acceptances and rejections.

Please note we cannot send contributor copies. 

We nominate for Best of the Net, Pushcart and other literary prizes.

We are working toward paying our contributors. If you would like to help support us in paying our writers, please visit our fundraising campaign by clicking the link below:
