Far Off Places


Submissions to Far Off Places are currently closed. Do check back regularly for updates though, and in the meantime have a gander at one of our previous issues, get your paws on a free - free! - teaser issue, or take a listen to our podcast to see what we’ve published in the past.


We’re happy to publish short writing in a variety of forms, including poetry, flash fiction, and short-form prose and drama. Fans of fairytales though we are, we always love a bit of creative non-fiction. We’re also happy to consider translation as long as the original is out of copyright.

Poetry should be no more than 40 lines. We accept prose and drama of up to 3000 words. You’re welcome to submit up to three poems or one piece of prose or drama.


Send pieces to submissions@faroffplaces.org as a Microsoft Word or plain text-document, or in the body of a sanely-formatted email.

The nitty gritty

All written submissions may be subject to a (short! friendly!) editorial process.

Authors will keep the copyright of their work, but we may use accepted pieces for promotion of Far Off Places. (We will try to let you know when this is the case though!) We’ll happily accept submissions which have been previously self-published, e.g. on your own website or blog.

We’ll make acceptance decisions and get back to you within six weeks of our submission deadline. We consider and give feedback on all submissions, so if you haven’t heard from us by then give us a shout.

We’re currently unable to pay for published work but will happily treat you to a beverage of your choice next time we see you. All published writers will also receive a complimentary digital copy of the magazine. If you have any questions, world-shattering revelations or bad jokes you’d like to share, feel free to write to us. Or write us anyway; we’re pretty social folk.
