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
- To begin with, I find myself fortunate having got an opportunity to be a part of eFiction workshop. It is, indeed, a great platform for all the newbie writers like me. It is grooming the writers, to be precise. I am very grateful to eFiction India for letting me be a part of this workshop as I did learn a lot during the process.A special mention about the extremely talented Deepti Razdan, who helped me edit my story and also, taught me how to minus the irregularities, confusions to make it appealing. She was available whenever I emailed her considering the time lag and took in to consideration even my slightest uncertainties. It definitely was enlightening and supportive and couldn't have asked for a better person. In short, the entire workshop was a great experience and I would love to continue to be a part of it. Keep up all the efforts you guys are taking to make us better writers.Shruthi Nayak
- "The variety in the content amazed me, forgive the cliche but there is something for everyone in there. I'd say the magazine is not a mere collection of works but thoughts of people from all across that add so much depth to the issue. Look forward to your next issue. Cheers!!!"Purva Grover

- "Dear Nikhil Sharda : I always look forward to your informative editor's notes.I usually find editors notes boring in general because they are dry and always contain the expected.You put great effort into your editor's notes. They are interesting and informative. Keep it up.Great effort!!"Michelle D'costa

- "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
- Thank you very much. I saw the changes which improved my manuscript a lot undoubtedly. Few places I felt the natural flow of the story got disturbed, but the workshop refined the story a notch higher. I am really amazed with the guidelines that have been prepared to improve the quality of a short story.' After the hangout, we received an e-mail from the author, giving his approval to the final version of the story.Narayan Roy
