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!

Every December, instead of our usual short stories, we publish stories set in winter or with a festive theme. You can find all of our past 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. The deadline is Monday 16th November.

You can find our submissions guidelines here. Please include ‘winter short story’ in the subject line of your email.

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