This handsome triannual continues to actively champion emerging writers. Forty percent of all the stories presented in the last year were their authors' first stories accepted for print publication. We know how much goes into writing a story you care about, and it is our great pleasure to read your work. Glimmer Train tries to set the bar for treating writers with respect.
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
