Beginning January 1st, 2018, The Sensitive, Bookish Type will be accepting submissions of original short fiction up to 7,000 words in length.

Fiction will be published on a monthly basis, or as suitable material is found.

Accepted work will be published on and may appear in promotional material or, at a later date, in a The Sensitive, Bookish Type anthology.

The Sensitive, Bookish Type pays $10 per story. This amount may rise as time goes on, but we reserve the right to begin charging a submission fee as necessary; for now, submissions are free and can be sent to:

All submissions must be embedded into the email; for the safety of our computer system, attachments will not be read. Please use “SBT Fiction Submission” as your subject line, and include a brief bio/cover letter.

Submitted work must be previously unpublished. We accept simultaneous submissions.

Please wait for a response before submitting again.
