Based in Chicago, Flyleaf Journal publishes exceptional short fiction written by both emerging and established writers. We believe that great stories can be both entertaining and profound, leaving a lasting impression on readers long after they put the story down. Each issue we publish is comprised of a single short story and an accompanying illustration designed by a graphic collaborator. the idea behind the single-story concept is to grant our readers an immerssive experience without the distractions typically found in a bound book with many stories competing for attention.
On the back of each printed issue is a Reader's Log for the reader to sign their name before mailing out to a friend, thus simulating a chain-mail effect that will allow the conversation surrounding the story to expand beyond the limits of geopraphy.
