Popshot Magazine
The Truth issue
Submissions open



Send in your short stories, flash fiction on the theme of truth for the 20th issue. Submissions close on February 26.

Popshot are enthusiastic to consider your work for The Truth Issue, out in May.

Not just post-truth, we want your fake news. For what is fiction except made-up truth? Fake news. Or perhaps truth within fake news?

From world affairs to love affairs, they want your stories and poems about truth, lies, secrets and cover-ups.  

As ever, they are seeking creativity and flair of all genres: humour, thrillers, family sagas, magic realism, melodrama and tragedy.

A few guidelines:

  • Poems: 12 to 40 lines
  • Short stories: 1,000 to 3,000 words
  • Flash fiction: 100 to 1,000 words

Three entries maximum.

The best way to see what they’re looking for is to pick up a copy of the magazine.

If you’d like to see your writing published and illustrated, head to the submit page for the full guidelines.
They’re open to original contributions from anyone, anywhere in the world. 
Submissions are open until 9am GMT on Monday, February 26.
