Escaped Ink publishes tall tales and short stories of up to 500 words, and we love original fiction and non-fiction across a range of genres and boundaries. Love fantasy? Fantastic! More literary minded? Lovely!
We love words and the power of expression and know that a story doesn’t have to be novel-length to have an impact. Five hundred words can leave you amazed, pensive or outraged. They can haunt your thoughts for the rest of the day and, because they’re short, you can consume them on your commute, delve into them after dinner, or dip in and out of for a quick respite from the pace of modern life.
