Those of you who write short fiction and want to get it read by a wider audience might be interested.

In the current issue of Writing Magazine, they feature a small article on Found Fiction, a group of people dedicated to getting new writing out to the public, and read by anyone, anywhere. 1185491_339723352829932_1556546_n

If you send your work to FF, they get it printed off and distribute it around public places, from art galleries to bus stops. They have people distributing around the world, from London to New York, so the possibilities of who could see your work is endless.

I’ve submitted my short story, ‘Broken Palace’, and it’s heading its way north to gothic York and Whitby.

If anyone is interested, take a look at Found Fiction’s Facebook page and follow them on Twitter @fictionfound.

Short fiction can be emailed to fictionfound@gmail.com, and they’ll distribute it around public spaces for free.

Your work remains anonymous and there isn’t any payment, but it potentially offers you exposure if your work is well received and people try to find out who is behind the story 🙂

  1. That’s an interesting idea. I wonder if by doing that the story counts as ‘published’ and therefore ineligible for some competitions and other markets?

  2. That’s a good point, and I’m not sure of the answer to be honest. I personally wouldn’t count it as ‘published’ in the typical sense of the word. If you own 100% of the rights to the work, then it’s down to you how you get it ‘out there’ to the public. A lot of competitions allow self-published submissions, so I think most work would still be deemed eligible. 🙂
