Our Mission

Fiction Southeast is an online literary journal dedicated to short fiction. The journal was founded by Editor, Chris Tusa, and Editor-at-Large, Michael Garriga. We publish fiction weekly as well as essays, reviews, and interviews. Past contributors include Joyce Carol Oates, Robert Olen Butler, Aimee Bender, Donald Ray Pollock, RT Smith, Michael Martone, Ron Carlson, and many others.

The mission of Fiction Southeast is to showcase short fiction from today’s most promising writers and to provide a wealth of online resources that writers can utilize to perfect their craft. Specifically, we aim to create an online literary journal that allows readers to quickly and easily access quality writing and writing-related resources from their laptops, tablets, and cell phones. Since electronic reading devices (and to some extent laptops for that matter) make reading long pieces of writing less enjoyable, we have chosen to dedicate the journal to “short fiction,” in this case, fiction which is approximately 1500 words or less in length. Aside from limiting the stories we publish to less than 1500 words, we have also implemented a READ NOW feature for every story/article on the site (just above the article/story title) that allows the user to increase the font, export to epub format, even save in Kindle format.
