Postcard Project

TSS is delighted to be launching the International Postcard Project.

Between 1st March and 31st August 2021, we’re accepting microfiction, flash fiction, prose poems, and creative non-fiction via postcard, from all over the world. This is a celebration of international creativity and if possible, we’ll be looking to run an exhibition showcasing postcards and writers from all around the world.

Every month, we’ll publish the postcards online that are sent to us.

Read the latest submissions here.

How to send us your work

Step One (required)

Write your story* (in English, using your best handwriting) on the back of a postcard and send** it to:

TSS Postcard Project
PO Box 77404
London
SW9 1FH

 

* Please remember to add a title and your name (pseudonyms are fine).
**Please remember to pay the correct postage!

 

Step Two (optional, but very helpful & quite sensible!)

Please note you must do this step if you want us to provide a transcript online of your story. Unfortunately we don’t have the time to type up every postcard.

Send us an email postcards@theshortstory.co.uk with:

– the transcript of your story in the body of the email
– your name (pseudonyms are fine)
– age (an approximation is okay, if you’re shy!)
– where you’re from (country and region).
– A photo of the back & front of your postcard.

That’s it!

We’re a small group of volunteers, dedicated to writers, readers, and publishers. We’re also a paying market and do our best to champion all voices.  When the nights are long and cold and the admin piles up, your help reminds us our work is appreciated. We’re hugely grateful for any support you can offer. Thank you.
