Event Details

The Bureau Dispatch publishes short stories between 500 to 1,500 words. We are open to all kinds of stories, but are partial to ones that explore this quarter’s narrative focus.

The focus for Volume 03 is epistolary stories and/or found things.

We want your best work. We are not a spec fic journal, but our stories often have a hint of the speculative, a dash of the intriguing. We want fiction that is compelling and beautifully-crafted; narratives that leave the reader breathless and changed. The kind of story that, when all is said and done, elicits a resounding “sh*t, yeah!

The Bureau Dispatch pays US$50 for work published. We require exclusive electronic rights for 3 months and non-exclusive print rights (for future print anthologies or collections) within 2 years of acceptance. All copyrights remain with the author at all times.
