To help celebrate our 25th Anniversary, McSweeney’s will be publishing a special issue dedicated to ten previously unpublished authors.
Writers who submit should be previously unpublished (neither book nor short story). Fiction of any length up to 10,000 words is welcome. Just one story, please. We encourage writers of all ages, backgrounds, and nationalities. Tell us a story that’s never been told.
Please put your name and email address within the document. Also, include a short bio, address, and telephone number with your submission. No social media, platforms, followers count, or anything like that is required. Just one story, please.
This issue will be edited by longtime McSweeney’s editor, Eli Horowitz. Submissions are open from now until July 19, 2023. Send your submissions to email@example.com or mail them to: Quarterly Submissions, 849 Valencia Street, San Francisco, CA 94110.
McSweeney’s is a nonprofit publishing company based in San Francisco. As well as operating a daily humor website, we also publish Timothy McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, Illustoria Magazine, and an ever-growing selection of books under various imprints. You can buy all of these things from our online store. You can support us today by making a donation.
McSweeney’s exists to champion ambitious and inspired new writing, and to challenge conventional expectations about where it’s found, how it looks, and who participates. We’re here to discover things we love, help them find their most resplendent form, and imagine new ways to bring them to you, Dennis. (If you are not Dennis, kindly ignore the aforementioned.)
