Delighted to Announce Award-Winning Author Edwidge Danticat is the Judge of the Flying Elephants Short Story Prize!

AndWeWereHungry is an online arts and literary magazine currently in development. We deeply apologize to our friends, supporters and potential contributors for our long-delay and want to assure every person that the story, poetry, or other work that she or he submitted to AndWeWereHungry never was—and never will be—at risk for misappropriation or misuse. We are committed to rebuilding the fragile trust of our nascent community and are currently working through the hundreds and hundreds of submissions we have received from writers and artists from around the world. We are coming soon…


Each quarterly issue will come packed with beautifully crafted short stories that bring you the world as only the best fiction can.

We will also feature on a rolling basis the best essays, true-stories-well-told, poems, photography and visual art we can get our hands on. We launch in Fall 2014, come back for your fill of short stories and more.
