The Stockholm Review of Literature (ISSN 2002-1100) is an online publication with immodest ambitions. It seeks to publish superlative literary fiction, poetry and essays, and it undertakes to promote the writers and artists that produce it.
Welcoming submissions of previously unpublished, original work, The Stockholm Review of Literature expresses a preference in the following:
- Short literary fiction
- Poetry suited for lunch time reading
- De-centered and uncanny essays, interviews and book reviews
And mild to extreme distaste for the following:
- Sloppiness and pomposity
- Terribly inspired things
