How We Work

Stories are submitted through the Longshot Island website. The best stories we receive (our short list) appear online there.

The best stories from the website go in the quarterly magazine, which is the printed edition of Longshot Island.

Stories are submitted to awards platforms to give authors recognition for excellent writing.

Currently, we submit to the Pushcart Prize, Best American, PEN America, and the O. Henry Prize.


Our main office is in Eugene, Oregon. Our staff and authors live all over the world.
