Briefly Write

A literary space for bold, succinct writing



Briefly Zine


Briefly Zine is committed to offering the freshest short fiction. We love bold, succinct stories between 6 and 600 words, and poems less than 16 lines.

We publish quarterly and read submissions all year round. It is free to submit and we want to read your words whether you have an extensive bio or are new to writing.

Issue 5 OUT NOW!

In the Briefly Zone, we have prompts and encouragement to improve and inspire your writing.

Our weekly prompt helps establish a writing routine, while our inspiring articles will keep you motivated in your writing.



Briefly Comps


Our Briefly Comps exist to celebrate and reward bold, succinct writing.

Entries to the Briefly Write Poetry Prize are open until 10th August 2021. We are looking for poems of up to 10 lines. Read the competition rules here.

The second edition of Write 10, Win 10 will open in December 2021.

At Briefly Read, we encourage you to read differently. To read for pleasure and with purpose. To encounter fresh perspectives, consider diverse opinions and hear new voices.

Peruse our reviews to find your next favourite book or dive straight into a reading challenge. Discover ways to make your reading more meaningful and get the most out of every book you pick up.


Support Briefly

We have ambitious plans for the future of Briefly Write – but we need your support to pursue them. We want to establish a sustainable model that will allow us to pay contributors, grow our readership and generate more exciting content and creativity. We want to encourage more people to share their story and do more to get under-represented voices heard.
