Black Denim Lit welcomes thoughtful writers, new and established. Open to genre fiction but favor “Literary, Non-Genre” & “Sci-Fi/Fantasy.” Read short stories at Black Denim Lit magazine online and on eReaders. For longer work, please see Black Denim Press.

Mission
Why “Black Denim”…? In work clothes, black denim is a less pretentious than khaki and more understated than blue jeans. This typifies the tone of writing style that appeals to us: grounded, approachable and unassuming. Don’t get us wrong–bring the grit, complexity, humor and strength. We look at a lot of genre work after all. But our tastes consider that “lasting artistic merit” can emerge from almost anywhere.

Description
Black Denim Lit welcomes thoughtful writers, new and established. Without entering into a debate as to what qualifies as “literary,” we are looking for fiction up to 7,500 words that has unique and lasting artistic merit. We may consider novelettes up to 17,500 words on a case by case basis. For anything longer, please visit Black Denim Press.
