We are a small and agile group of folk who are passionate about bringing the best genre short fiction to your ears.

We are always looking for more stories to add to our magazine. We have a simple submissions policy to try to keep our workload to a minimum and our magazine the best it can be.

Before submitting anything please listen to what we have produced so far to familiarise yourself with the kind of story that we publish. Each edition of the magazine is based around a theme, so please bear that in mind when submitting your story. If you have work that fits into a particular theme that we have not covered, we are open to suggestions.

  • All material submitted to WordPunk should be in electronic format and sent using our online submission system at Submittable. This will be processed by our online submission system, enabling you to check the status of your submission at any time.
  • You must have the rights to the story. If your story has been sold under first rights exclusive, you may need to check with your publisher to ensure you are allowed to re-publish. If in doubt please contact your publisher. It is your responsibility to ensure you have the rights to allow us to publish your story.
  • We are not a paying market. Our ethos is to grow the short fiction market by providing a free service to authors and readers alike.
