Welcome to Capsule Stories

Welcome to Capsule Stories, a print literary magazine published once every season. Our first issue was published on March 1, 2019, and we accept submissions year-round.

We have a penchant for pretty words, an affinity to the melancholy, and an undeniably time-ful aura. We believe that stories exist in a specific moment, and that that moment is what makes those stories unique.

What we’re really looking for are stories that can touch the heart. Stories that come from the heart. Stories about love, identity, the self, the world, the human condition. Stories that show what living in this world as the human you are is like.

There’s so much noise out there, bombarding us constantly with an endless stream of information and it becomes harder and harder to hear ourselves think. This is a quiet place for you to sit, read, remember, and reflect.

We believe that words shape us as individuals. Words stay with us as we go through life, and the words we kept sacred yesterday may be different than the words we need today. Whatever you may be experiencing right at this time in your life, there are the right words for it. The right words comfort us in need. They breathe life into our beings. They show us how we feel. And we are here to give them to you, one season at a time.

You can submit your own writing to us on our submissions page. We’d love to read your work and consider it for our next edition of Capsule Stories.

You can see our previous Capsule Stories editions and read our blog posts to get a sense of who we are.
