MONTHLY SHORT STORY SHOWCASE – Submissions open

If you’ve spent the month working on a short story or been inspired by one of our prompts we’d love to feature you in our short story showcase, which will be launched in November. We’ll pick one story a month and feature it alongside a profile of the writer.



While there are no rules, as a rough guide,  we are keen to platform and publish stories between 300 – 3000 words. There’ll be a rolling deadline of the second Friday of each month, with the selected story published the following Friday.



We’re keen to showcase new writing, so send us your best work and tell me a little bit about yourself and what inspired your story. We’ll choose one story each month, and publish it.


For story submissions please email f.shaikh@dahliapublishing.co.uk by the first Friday each month and use Short Story September in the subject heading.
