Stork is Emerson College's only strictly fiction literary magazine. We publish two issues each school year, a short-short issue (4 pages or less), and a longer issue (up to 30 pages per story). All submissions are read by our staff and receive critical feedback. We value stories that, while they may be short in length, are long in meaning.

Check out some of our previous issues at!

Please e-mail us at for more information about submissions, events, or storks.

Happy writing!


Please note, Stork only accepts submissions from Emerson College undergraduate and graduate students at this time.

We are looking for artists with a minimalistic style and a portfolio of strong line work -- artists who are able tell a vivid story with bold, clear images. We like illustrations that utilize negative space to complement the text and give the page, and our readers, room to breathe. The illustrations pictured below are examples of styles that demonstrate these qualities.
