Does Barking Rain Press accept short stories?

Anthologies & Short StoriesBarking Rain Press publishes novels and novellas; we are not a publisher of short stories, short fiction, flash fiction or poetry. We do not publish single short stories, pieces of flash fiction, or poems.

However, we do publish anthologies (or collections) of short stories from single authors that comprise a collection or are otherwise built around a central theme or concept. For an example, please see Curiously Twisted Tales, which is a single-author anthology of short stories. The stories have a strong central theme that makes the collection more akin to a novel.

At this time, Barking Rain Press does not publish anthologies written by multiple authors (i.e., collections of short stories, with each story written by a different author), even if the individual short stories have been written to a unifying theme.
