CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS : Flash Fiction Submissions
The Flash Fiction Magazine is an online platform that allows contributors promote their writing skills on the platform (their website) and also run a magazine at Flash Fiction Magazine anthologies which they pall all successful contributors $40 (USD) for.
What qualifies as a STORY is subjective, but in general
- It should have a beginning, middle, and end with conflict and resolution.
- Conflict = There needs to be an incident or event of some kind. Something must happen to qualify as a STORY.
- Resolution = In the end, the character’s world is different as a result of the incident and how it was dealt with.
- When in doubt ask yourself, “Did something happen?”
We are not interested in lyrical musings, journal entries, poetry, vignettes, or slices of life with no discernible plot or STORY.
- Submit only fictative works under 300–1000 words.
- Read Flash Fiction Magazine books to see what stories we have previously paid for.
- No previously published work. Please ensure all submissions made have not been proviously published elsewhere even on personal websites.
- Simultaneous submissions are allowed. Let the ditors know if your story is accepted elsewhere.
- Do not submit excerpts from your latest novel or short stories. Flash fiction should be a complete story.
- Flash fiction isn’t non-fiction or personal memoir—but by all means, fictionalize these.
- We do not accept poetry.
- We do not accept children’s fiction.
- We do not accept erotica. Adult themes including sex, violence, and even politics are fair game.
- We don't need any more stories about the writing process. We have a huge audience of readers who are not authors. Don't bore them.
- We don’t want to get into rights issues, so no living public figures as characters, fan-fiction involving proprietary characters (Batman, etc.), and song lyrics. Passing references to all of these are fine.
