eFiction India is a professionally produced independent magazine devoted to showcasing the work of writers with a connection to the Indian subcontinent. It features the best writing talent from around the world. From the very first issue, we’ve always wanted to be a platform for some of the most exciting new writing, priding ourselves on the fact that our contributors are chosen for the quality of their work, rather than the influence of their names.
The magazine is conceived as a dialogue — a constant stream of thoughts exchanged between writers, editors and readers on a platform which carries the best of contemporary writing in India. eFiction India publishes essays, fiction, poetry, art and criticism, and welcomes first-time authors and published writers alike. One of the special features that eFiction India offers is full-length plays and screenplays, complete with camera/stage directions
Although the magazine content is focused on the Indian subcontinent, it is not India-specific. At eFiction India, we want our magazine to address a community which is more easily defined in terms of mind-space rather than in purely geographical terms. Our readers have only one common denominator: they are sensitive and are looking for something more than what mainstream publishing can provide them. We want to be the medium that carries your voice to readers around the world.
So, send us your stories and we will let your voice sing to our readers.
More about us
We, at eFiction India, know what the ‘life’s Pressures on the writers are all about, being wordbugs ourselves…….We share the pains, we carry the burdens, so that your story reaches the Indian homes, around the year.
More often than not, the one that thinks first, wins. That is why “ideating”, the work of visualising the intangibles, the art of thinking ahead, the method of treating your story as a living entity ready to wage its war of survival is perhaps the most important function, the most important service that we can offer to our writers.
Because no one else is. And besides, our ways of the mind are unconventional, without the known fretters, without the impediments of age and rust – that is why we think fast, we think lateral, we think strategies that others , ahem, follow.
Here. On the Web. And everyone is invited.
What our subscribers say about us
- "The story fragment is excellent, makes me want to read more of it...perhaps that's what flash fiction is about....but i wish it had not ended so abruptly, could have been longer. But very good use of words.You can develop it further, I feel."Monika Pant
- "eFiction India is trying to fill in a huge gap that the magazine industry has in this part of the world- there are so many stories to tell from so many parts of the country. But where are all those stories going? It would be a shame not to read the new voices that are coming out, streaming out even, every single Indian day on the calendar. E-fiction offers stories that are very readable- with different shades of experience be it humour, romance or angst. Poetry is not ignored either, in fact it is relished with some of the poems being turned into songs. 'Creativity counts no coins' is a feature that stayed with me once I read the magazine. How necessary it is to give quality education if our children, our future, are to shine bright and tell us braver, better stories! Look forward to more thought-provoking issues in the future!"Neelima Vinod
- "efiction India is versatile and one of its kind, which is reflected in the fact that it does not just limit itself to publishing fiction, but delves into music as well. It does what no other magazine does. It gives the real meaning, it gives life to the write-ups through these poetry based songs which make the magazine distinctly unique."Ananya Dhawan
- I wish to convey my special thanks to Nikhil for liking my work and commenting on it so aptly. Thanks a lot for your support too and i think the workshop was quite educative and helpful. I read the edited version and tried to learn better ways of structuring sentence, grammar and syntaxes, following the corrections you made. Thanks a lot once again for that .Nita Bajoria

"Just went through the magazine and I think it is one of the most amazing works that I have read so far. So much maturity in the art from people who have barely started their journey in life is phenomenal. I am sure it must be a tough job choosing an article over another and working on them, but I must say that the team of eFiction India has done brilliant job. From the eye catching cover to the easy to read design and content. Cant wait for another issue to come out"
