Zoetrope: All-Story is a magazine specializing in the best of contemporary short fiction. They boast a circulation of approximately 20,000 (in 2012).

Before submitting, non-subscribers should read several issues of the magazine to determine if their works fit with All-Story. Electronic versions of the magazine are available to read, in part, at the website; and print versions are available for purchase by single-issue order and subscription.

They consider unsolicited submissions of short stories and one-act plays no longer than 7,000 words. Excerpts from larger works, screenplays, treatments, and poetry will be returned unread. They do not accept artwork or design submissions. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, and first serial rights and a one-year film option are required. They do not accept unsolicited revisions nor respond to writers who don't include an SASE.

All-Story does not accept submissions between September 1 and December 31 (with the exception of stories entered in the annual Short Fiction Contest, which are considered for publication in the magazine).

All-Story does not accept submissions via e-mail. Send stories to:

Zoetrope: All-Story
Attn: Fiction Editor
916 Kearny St.
San Francisco, CA 94133

They invite writers to take advantage of the Virtual Studio, a free online writers' workshop sponsored by All-Story and its publisher, Francis Coppola. Writers are encouraged to support the small and independent publications to which they submit; magazines such as All-Story depend on subscriptions to survive, ensuring forums for publication of new and emerging writers.
