Fictionable is a literary magazine devoted to the best new short stories from around the world. Stories from writers of stature appear alongside the most exciting new voices, with a wide range of tone and perspective.

Fictionable matches its global ambition with global distribution, being available to anyone with a smartphone all around the world.

As citizens of the connected Earth we are passionate about stories in translation and as inhabitants of the 21st century we are inspired by audio and graphic fiction. Both will feature regularly in Fictionable.

We also welcome submissions from writers all over the world. These submissions will help us find the most exciting voices of the future.
