Welcome to Prime Number Magazine:

A Journal of Distinctive Poetry & Short Fiction

Prime Number Magazine is a quarterly online publication of distinctive poetry and short fiction that is selected for each issue by guest editors. Our goal is to provide a platform for new and established writers, and to bring a rewarding experience to our readers. 

Prime Number Magazine is a publication of Press 53, whose mission is to find and share remarkable voices to ignite and inspire remarkable minds.

A subscription is free so sign up now and we will notify you when a new issue is available. We promise to not bombard you with emails, and we will never share your email address with anyone.

If you are a writer and would like to submit poetry or short fiction for consideration, please visit our submissions page at Submittable, the best online submissions manager in the business. Submissions are free of charge. Contributors include new, emerging, and established writers. The magazine’s goal is to publish distinctive work, regardless of theme or style.

Also check out our free Prime Number Magazine 53-Word Story Contest. Each month we offer a prompt, and the author of the best 53-word story selected by that month's judge wins a free book from Press 53 and the winning 53-word story will be published here in Prime Number Magazine. Read some of our 53-Word Story Contest winners here.

In July 2017, we debuted our monthly Flash Fiction Contest with a prize of $251 going to the author of the winning story selected by that month's judge. Winners will be published in Prime Number Magazine alongside our other contributors.

We hope you will return to our magazine often and will share the link with your friends. Give us a LIKE on Facebook and follow us on Twitter. You never know what we might be posting.
