Always growing, ever evolving, The Shortish Project is cataloguing popular and acclaimed short novels getting published now – and in the past 200 or so years.

In addition to spotlighting new and classic short novels, The Shortish Project also maintains a publishing program, dedicated to expanding the universe of short novels.

The program is open to all styles and genres. Publishing in paperback and ebook editions, Shortish offers original work by debut and established authors available at online and local booksellers.

Ready to publish your short novel? Get started here.

Just keep your work between 75 pages and 200 pages (or so). That's between 14,000 words and 42,000 words (or so).

We keep the process simple and streamlined, or if you'd like, we can support your own marketing plans, from reviews to advertising to author events.
