Story submissions

For our online journal:

Flash fiction pieces of between 700 and 1000 words can be submitted to fiction[at]aerodrome.co.za, attached as a Word document (.doc or .docx). Please use “your name – story” as the file name.

Writers of all nationalities are eligible to submit their stories, though their submissions must be in English.

Text should be 12 pt Arial or Times New Roman and double spaced.

Only stories that have not been previously published will be accepted.

Please ensure that you have carefully edited and proofread your story. Sloppy submissions will not be considered.

You will retain the copyright to your work, but by submitting it to AERODROME you give us permission to publish your story online, in print and elsewhere, and for your work to be edited by our editorial team. You also agree to give AERODROME online exclusivity for 60 days from the date of publication.

If your submission is successful, we’ll be in touch within about three months.

For our special editions:

Occasionally we may ask for longer short stories as part of a specific special edition we are working on. Please like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to keep abreast of any calls for submissions for our special editions.
