Written Tales Magazine
Written Tales is a literary magazine without censorship. We’re not biased and instead focus on creative writing. We embrace short fiction, non-fiction, and poetry. If you’re a new or seasoned writer, you’ve found your new home. Our goal, connect those who love the creative writing arts. Remember, when creative arts cease, innovation dies. Society dissolves into the abyss of ignorance. Critical thinking becomes a lost art. Writers need an uncensored place to share their work. Readers need to read the work they can enjoy and reflect upon. And in between, a community that promotes and encourages all types of writing endeavors. Because of this need, Written Tales was born. Check our guidelines and submit your masterpieces for the world to enjoy. We accept submissions throughout the year.
