The Berkeley Fiction Review is Open for Submissions!


The Berkeley Fiction Review is an undergraduate, student-run publication. We look for innovative short fiction that plays with form and content, as well as traditionally constructed stories with fresh voices and original ideas. We invite submissions of previously unpublished short stories year round and publish annually.

We Nominate To:

O. Henry, Best American Short Stories, and Pushcart prizes

The Berkeley Fiction Review is a forum for short fiction, published annually. We invite submissions of previously unpublished short stories with these guidelines in mind:

Submissions should be typed, double-spaced and single sided with 12 pt. Times New Roman type.
Include your name, email address and phone number on the first page of the story.
Simultaneous submissions are encouraged, with notification.
The Berkeley Fiction Review does not accept stories longer than 25 pages, as we try to publish between 10 and 15 stories each issue.
We only accept electronic submissions, sent to bfictionreview@yahoo.com, with “Submission: Name, Title” in the subject line (For example, Submission: John Doe, The Girl in the Pool).
Cover letters should be in the body of the email, stories should be attached as .doc or .pdf files.
Keep your cover letters brief: include name, address, email address and the title of your story. Please don't summarize the story - it should speak for itself.
Since our staff is composed of student volunteers, expect a delay if you submit during the summer. Our payment is one contributor's copy.
Contributors are encouraged to read the Berkeley Fiction Review before submitting work in order to get a feel for the work we publish. Our most recent issue, Issue #31 is $10, and back issues are $8.50, including shipping and handling.
