Litmags that publish novellas

When they’re hits, everyone loves novellas, those little books that can be read in one or two sittings. With word counts somewhere between a novel and a short story, novellas, with their reputation for poor return on investment, can be misfits for many publishers. It’s not easy to love losing money.

The following publications have identified novellas as their domain, which is quite a generous objective.

The Conium Review

The Fantasist

Garden Gnome Publications (anthology series)

The Long Story

Narrative

Ploughshares Solos

A Public Space

Pulp Literature
