Call for Submissions: Winter Short Stories


As the nights draw in and the weather turns cooler, we’re all set to embrace autumn, put on some cosy knitwear and curl up with a good book. But it won’t be long before autumn turns to winter, bringing with it a month of winter-themed stories!

For the last two Decembers, instead of our usual short stories, we have published stories set in the cold winter months, or with a festive theme. You can find all of our winter-themed stories here.

This year, once again, we will be publishing one wintry short story every Thursday in December. For a chance to feature in this year’s line-up, please send your short story to submissions@fairlightbooks.com.

You can find our submissions guidelines here.

We look forward to reading your short stories to keep us warm through the chilly months to come!
