The Red Line is an online magazine publishing English Language short stories from International writers.Issue 9 cops

We run a free-to-enter, bi-monthly, themed competition which carries a fifty pound cash prize and is judged by different people every time.  These can be reading groups, editors of other magazines, writers, or maybe somebody with a specific interest in the theme.  At the end of each competition we turn all of the stories and the feedback into a magazine which is available for free on this website and via Issuu.

We aim to bring together people from all over the world to contribute and participate.  Quality fiction can take you out of your self for a time and show you a different way of looking at the world you live in.  We want to introduce writers who have this talent to new readers who want the experience of travelling, to a completely different city or community, or to inhabit a completely different person, all by simply turning pages (or clicking a mouse).

  1. I would love to enter a piece, however I am not sure my genre would be acceptable. It fits all you wish in a story but the content is of an erotic nature

    • Hi Odette,

      Erotic is fine, pornographic is not. We don’t mind any kind of genre as long as it is well executed, original, and if it contains things that some people may find offensive has a reason for doing so.

      Cheers,

      Josh

    • Hi Lynden,

      Not at all. We have featured a number of British writers and at least one of them has won. By using the term “international” we are only trying to express that the competition is not confined to one country or another.
