Aims & Scope
Short Fiction in Theory and Practice is an interdisciplinary journal celebrating the current resurgence in short-story writing and research. Looking at short fiction from a practice-based perspective, it explores the poetics of short-story writing, adaptation, translation and the place of the short story in global culture.

All submissions are peer-reviewed. Contributions are welcome from individuals who do not consider themselves academics, and may take the form of personal commentaries, reflections, interviews and reviews, as well as conventional essays. We are pleased to consider proposals from those publishing or promoting the short story, as well as from short-story writers.

Abstracting and Indexing

Poetry and Short Story Reference Center, International Bibliography of Periodical Literature in the Humanities and Social Sciences (IBZ) and International Bibliography of Book Reviews in Scholarly Literature in the Humanities and Social Sciences (IBR), European Reference Index for the Humanities and Social Sciencses (ERIH), MLA,  and Ulrich’s.
