Short stories should preferably be no longer than 1,500 words and should be sent as separate Word attachments to editor@thecaterpillarmagazine.com.

If you do wish to post work to us, then please ensure that you retain the original, and bear in mind that we cannot return work but will respond by email. Postal submissions should be sent to:
