What kind of stories is One Story looking for?
One Story is seeking literary fiction. Because of our format, we can only accept stories between 3,000 and 8,000 words. They can be any style and on any subject as long as they are good. We are looking for stories that leave readers feeling satisfied and are strong enough to stand alone.
Does One Story pay money?
Yes. One Story is offering $100 and 15 contributors copies for first North American serial rights. All rights will revert to the author upon publication.
Does One Story accept previously published material?
No. One Story is looking for previously unpublished material. However, if a story has been published outside of North America, it will be considered.
When can I submit to One Story?
We accept submissions from September 1 through May 31.
