A Tiny And Colorful Literary Journal

Hi Nailpolish Stories readers and contributors. 

NS’s schedule has grown from a tiny thing to bigger tiny thing.  The original schedule nearly a year and half ago was weekly–every Monday new work was posted.  Later, it changed to a monthly publication.  Now, NS will be a quarterly.  Due to both the number of submissions NS receives and my desire to not rush the selection and editorial process, I feel this will benefit the publication, its readers, and its contributors. 

NS will now be published four times a year:

Winter Issue in January

Spring Issue in April

Summer Issue in July

Fall Issue in October

All issues will be posted the first Monday of the month.  Submissions will still be read year-round on a rolling basis and responded to between four and six weeks, and often much sooner.  If two months pass and you do not hear from me, please do send a note, and I will be sure to get to it.  

Please visit on the first Monday of April, which happens to be the 1st, for our first Quarterly Issue.  No fooling.   

Submitters, I look forward to reading your vibrant little splashes.  Readers, thank you, as always, for stopping by.

All Best,

Nicole Monaghan

Founding and Managing Editor, NS

  2. Jerry, NS only publishes stories that are exactly twenty-five words and take their titles from nail polish names.
