A note about submissions

Hey all. As you may have noticed if you had it marked on your calendars, we did not open to submissions today as planned. We’ve gotten a ton of good stuff in our previous two periods, and that, along with some internal reorganization going on at Fireside, means we thought it best to cancel the submissions periods this month and in July. We’ll be open again in the fall. Full details are available on our submissions page. Thanks so much!

About the author

Brian J. White

Brian White started Fireside in 2012 with a Kickstarter and a whole lot of love. Over the next five years as editor and publisher – with the help of his amazing team and of Lauren, his wife and partner in crime – he expanded Fireside from a one-off magazine to a monthly publication to its current form, a site with weekly fiction and occasional nonfiction. Fireside published 150 stories under his tenure, as well as five novels and one novella. He is deeply proud to have had a part in bringing those stories into the world. He was gratified to have proved that writers can be paid more for their work than the industry accepted, and perhaps most proud of the #BlackSpecFic report that Fireside published in 2016. He stepped down as editor and publisher in the summer of 2017, but he remains an equity partner in the company.
