Fireside Magazine - Fiction (Go to Poetry)
Fireside Books




Description
Fireside Fiction Company, owned by Brian J. White, launched Fireside Magazine in 2012; the magazine has since been nominated for multiple Hugo Awards and the company has grown to include publishing occasional novels and novellas under Fireside Books. Fireside's goals are to publish great stories regardless of genre, and to promote fair pay for authors, editors, illustrators, and all publishing staff. Please note that Fireside Magazine currently operates on a guest editor model, and what each guest editor is looking for will vary, so make sure to check the Submissions page of our website for full details before submitting. We love to celebrate voices both new and familiar, and we welcome works from authors across the globe.
