Storyteller is looking for a modern evolution of literary fiction. We want stories that hook right from the first sentence and don't let go until the impactful climax a few thousand words later. Stories should be titled to attract a reader's interest; not to describe the story. The hook should pull the reader straight into the action. The climax should have emotional relevance. We want goose-bump triggering impact.

Upon acceptance, contributors are required to collaborate with editors and other contributors to revise their submission, as well as promote the issue to which their work is accepted.
