Zoetrope- All Story

If your looking to start getting creative online, find an audience and build up your writing name. Then Zoetrope- All Story is a great place worth taking a look at. There are many online fiction magazines out their who will pay for your fiction, but Zoetrope is not one of them. This does not mean that it is not a website worth looking at for fiction writers. I would say that ZoeTrope is a website fit for all fiction writers. Whether you are new to the game or an old timer, there are benefits for writing with this site.

It is a man named Francis Ford Coppola who started off All Story, a quarterly fiction magazine which say it is devoted to publishing great short fiction and one act plays. This fiction mag is now massive and has a lot of people involved with it. But what really keeps this site going, is their great team of volunteers who respond to up to 12,000 submissions a year. The advice from the site before you decide to send them any of your work, is to have a good look back over some older magazines issue's. This is so you can make sure that your work, is going to fit in with what Zoetrope- All Story want.

One thing this site is sure not after, is a load of no effort short fiction stories sent to them. They want great work which is going to build up their reputation, and make them an even bigger name on the online fiction scene. One way they go about this, is by not taking too much work off any one person. So All Story do not accept multiple submissions, and they want no more than two stories a year off you.

What do they want?

So what do they want? That's simple they want short stories or one act plays no longer than seven thousand words. longer stories, poetry or anything else sent to them that they have not asked for, will quickly be sent back unread to the writer. One great thing about this site, is that their is a chance that your stories or plays could be made into a film. Which would be a great achievement for any budding writer.


Although this is not a paying website, you still could earn some cash here. by entering their writing contest. Their are important dates as far as the contest's go, and your stories must be submitted by these dates. All the info for this can be found on their site. One good reason to join these contests, is the prize money. A thousand dollars for the winner, five hundred for runner up and 250 for third place. Great prizes but something which may be off putting for some, is the fact that it does cost 20 dollars to enter.

Other Advantages

All Story also have some great advantages for their newbies. Every year this website holds online fiction courses. So if you are looking to learn a little more about writing fiction, then this site could be for you. But hurry quick if you like the sound of it, as the spaces fill up quickly every year.

Zoetrope- All Story will not accept your stories online or on their site or through email. You must send your stories to their address by post, the address can easily be found on their website.
