The Beloit Fiction Journal publishes the best in contemporary short fiction. Traditional and experimental narratives find a home in our pages. We publish new writers alongside established writers. Our fiction-only format allows us to consider very long as well as very short stories. We occasionally publish excerpts.

Work first appearing in BFJ has been reprinted in award-winning collections, including the Norton Anthology of Short Fiction, the Flannery O’Connor and the Milkweed Fiction Prize collections and has received the Iowa Short Fiction award.
