Short Stories Needed

Author Identity is concentrating its efforts on the short story market. They are compiling works of short fiction into collections. These collections will combine the efforts of well-known authors and literary figures alongside new upcoming authors. Contact them at for more information regarding manuscript submissions.

In the past the demand for quality short stories was high, and authors were more than willing to submit their work to publishers. Unfortunately, today the demand has diminished with the high cost of publishing. Large publishers have shied away from this art form, which has left fewer and fewer people the opportunity these days to read short stories. The goal of this company is to give a nice cross section of short stories in the hope these short stories will excite readers into rediscovering this excellent source of entertainment.
