In 1990, we set out to champion emerging writers, to try to set the bar for treating writers with respect, and to present significant short fiction in a handsome physical publication that would persist in the real world. Now, after nearly three decades, Glimmer Train will be pulling out of the station for good at the end of the year—we hope you'll join us for these final months!
It will be my very first published story, and I can't tell you what it means to me to know it will be in Glimmer Train. Yours was the first literary magazine I ever read; I'm incredibly honored to have been chosen.—Aria Beth Sloss, Autobiography of Us
One of the most respected short-story journals in print, Glimmer Train continues to actively champion emerging writers. The magazine is represented in recent editions of the Pushcart Prize: Best of the Small Presses, New Stories from the Midwest, the O. Henry Prize Stories, New Stories from the South, Best of the West, New Stories from the Southwest, Best American Short Stories, and The Best American Nonrequired Reading.
WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US!
