We are interested in short fiction written by LDS women that touch on subjects in harmony with our mission statement. Please read a variety of pieces from our archive to understand what we are looking for. Submissions should be no longer than 5000 words.
Message from the fiction editor: As a genre, fiction allows writers the freedom to tell any story in any way they choose. As a reader, I am interested in submissions that develop complex characters and tell engaging stories that deal with themes directly and tangentially important to LDS women. I particularly enjoy reading work that offers a fresh and fearless narrative voice, that experiments with storytelling techniques, and that engages rich and original plots through vibrant language. Similarly, I am uninterested in stories that come across as didactic, moralistic, or heavy handed. Surprise me, delight me, break my heart, and leave me wanting more.
If the submission is greater than 1 MB, send it as an attachment to an email to segullah.prose [at] gmail [dot] com. You will receive an automated email response confirming our receipt of your submission.
Submissions accepted for publication are subject to revision under the guidance of an editor.
