Out of all the things we do, there’s little doubt which is the most rewarding; having the chance to publish great pieces of fiction is the reason Bandit Fiction was founded in the first place, and since day one, there’s been no better feeling than being able to publish people’s stories. We’ve even had the absolute honour of being the first publisher to show off the works of some great new and emerging writers to the world.

This includes works above or below our accepted word or line count, multiple works included in a single document, works previously submitted to ourselves, and all works where more than 3 works by the same author are submitted simultaneously.
If you have problems submitting to us using Google Docs, you can submit directly to us by sending your submissions as individual attachment(s). However, please be aware that for atypical submissions like this, we cannot guarantee a timescale for replies, and so would always recommend submitting to us through Google Docs. As with those submissions made through Google Docs, we will reject, unread and without reply, any submission which does not adhere to our submission policy stated above.
When Will I Hear Back About My Submission?
We aim to respond to all submissions within 6 weeks, though usually we will respond within 3 to 4 weeks. If we haven’t responded after 6 weeks, please get in touch.
Do You Pay For The Work You Publish?
After conducting thorough research and gaining feedback from those who submit to us, we have decided not to pay for the works we publish. Instead, any money we have (which does not go towards paying immediate running costs) is invested in growing our audience and offering the best services we can.
