Update: After 9 years, I decided to close Bartleby Snopes. The site remains live indefinitely along with all published work. Closing the magazine was a bittersweet moment, and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to read so many stories and meet so many writers. Read the full announcement here.
Bartleby Snopes is a literary magazine founded by Nathaniel Tower back in 2008. We publish 2 stories per week and host a Story of the Month contest at the end of each month.
The magazine was founded with the intention of responding to every submission within a week, usually with a personal response.
We also release 2 PDF/print anthologies per year. Our winter issue features the winners from our Dialogue Only Contest, an annual contest with big prize money.
This past year, we launched a special issue called Post-Experimentalism.
In 2010, Flavorwire named Bartleby Snopes as one of 10 Online Lit Mags You Should Be Reading.
Bartleby Snopes nominates stories for all major awards, including the Pushcart Prize, the Micro Award, Best of the Net, and more.
The editorial team is rounded out by Rick Taliaferro, Justin Lawrence Daugherty, and Cortney Phillips.
