We publish flash fiction and longer short stories.
Flashes (up to 1,000 words) are published in groups of at least three. Longer short stories (1,200 to 6,000 words) are published as single works.
Please submit at least three flash fiction pieces in one file. Submissions of fewer than three flash-length stories will be automatically declined.
Longer short stories should be submitted as single works, in one file.
We accept simultaneous submissions. Please let us know if all or part of the submission has been accepted elsewhere. If the original submission contains three or more shorter works, and one or more works from the submission are accepted elsewhere, please withdraw the submission if it contains fewer than three works.
We do not accept work that appears (or is forthcoming) in another online venue. However, we do accept work that appears only in print, or has appeared in an online venue that is defunct and no longer maintains an online presence (including archived material).
If your submission is declined and we do not ask to see more work from you, please wait at least a month before submitting more material.
We take approximately two weeks to three months to respond to submissions. Feel free to contact us at any time to ask about the status of your submission.
