Novel Collective by Lian Flick is a space for showcasing new and emerging writers’ work, and a space for inspiring writers.

It was created because there are many more writers with a story to tell than there are publishing contracts. With a career in publishing and editing spanning more than a decade, Lian knows that new and emerging writers’ submissions are competing not only with those of their peers, but also with established authors. The stories about the infamous slush pile have more truth than fiction to them.

But don’t let this deter you. Novel Collective offers a new avenue for honing your writing skills, publishing your first short work and gaining a wide readership. We’re on a mission to discover the next generation of talent and broadcast it worldwide.

We offer a full and professional publishing and editing experience. We’ll walk you through a simple contract, edit and publish your work on our website, and then feature it on our social media. Our website delivery method means your writing is always just a few clicks or taps away from anyone who has a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone.

Novel Collective celebrates many forms of short writing: short stories, travel diaries, reviews, interviews, poetry and lyrics, illustrated work, children’s stories, human-interest articles, recipes and much more. Great writing can transport you to another time or place, touch your soul and evoke powerful emotions. We hope the pieces we share unlock your imagination and inspire you to do what’s at the heart of why we’re here: create.
