Issue 10

Fall 2020

Letter from the Editor


At BIG FICTION, we are an international literary magazine that celebrates the soul of the long story: generous, transportive, and a little wild. We also invoke the spirit of the long essay: curious, self-aware, and free. We are an independent journal that publishes work from established and emerging writers twice a year.

"Truly admirable fiction, beautiful presentation, lasting quality. For lovers of any of these, Big Fiction is an indispensable gift."  - NewPages.com

what's the big deal?

Thank you so much for trusting us with your work. Over the course of the pandemic, our editorial staff, as have many of you, has been affected directly and often. We have not been immune to personal losses. The pandemic has also taken a toll on the collaborative effort required of this endeavor, and as a result, reading manuscripts and reviewing has taken much longer than we would have hoped.

We lament to announce that our next issue will be our last. We are completing the review of manuscripts that you have entrusted us with since the start of the pandemic, and we have been reading them carefully. We are actively sending out announcements, and we aim to complete the process by the end of the year, a process that will include publication.

We hope that this temporary closure of the magazine means a hiatus and a shutdown, a pause and not a stop.

Thank you again for entrusting us with your work.
