Short story submissions

AERODROME publishes original short stories on a regular basis.

Short stories between 800 and 5000 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 single 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 giving AERODROME online exclusivity for 30 days from the date of publication.

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