About Ash Tales


Ash Tales is an independent literary journal dedicated to post apocalyptic fiction: stories exploring the end of the world as we know it.

Ash Tales accepts submissions from writers of all levels of experience, and unlike other literary journals, we don’t demand exclusivity for any of our stories. Our mission is to raise awareness for the fascinating and prescient post apocalyptic genre, so if your story’s good, we’ll help promote it.

As well as our short story collection, Ash Tales publishes a post apocalyptic podcast—end of the world stories narrated in twenty minutes or less.
