Short Fiction in Theory and Practice is an interdisciplinary journal celebrating the current resurgence in short-story writing and research. Looking at short fiction from a practice-based perspective, it explores the poetics of short-story writing, adaptation, translation and the place of the short story in global culture. Vol. 1 will be available from Intellect Press in Jan. 2011.

While all submissions are peer-reviewed, we aim to be inclusive. Contributions are welcome from individuals who do not consider themselves academics, and may take the form of personal commentaries, reflections, interviews and reviews, as well as conventional essays. We are pleased to consider proposals from those publishing or promoting the short story, as well as from short-story writers. Deadline for Vol. 1: August 22nd 2010.

Please contact the Principal Editor for submission guidelines.
