Gray's Sporting Journal - Fiction (Go to Poetry)

We expect competent, vividly written prose—fact or fiction—that has high entertainment value for a very sophisticated audience.

Features and Yarns
Features may be fact or fiction, hunting or fishing, long or short but no shorter than 1,500 words. We rarely publish eulogy pieces, but if you’re convinced—heart and soul—that yours is superior, we’ll certainly take a look. Yarns are just that—campfire tales, fact or fiction, and should run from 750 to 1,500 words.
