Submissions are now open for The Big Issue Fiction Edition 2018!

You could be a part of one of the biggest-selling fiction magazines in Australia. All you have to do is start writing – and send in your story!

This exciting bumper edition, returning for its 14th year, will feature work from some of Australia's most-loved writers, as well as a collection of open submissions.
