One of the most respected short-story journals in print, Glimmer Train actively championed emerging writers since its inception in 1990, trying 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.
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.
Now, after nearly three decades, Glimmer Train is pulling out of the station for good as of December 15, 2019. (Now’s the time to order for any remaining issues!) We are grateful to all who have shared their stories with us and to our dedicated readers.
WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US!
