Flash Fiction Magazine: Now Accepting Submissions

Flash Fiction Magazine publishes one piece of flash per day of the year. They are always open to submissions.

Their general submissions are free, but they also have a contest. The deadline for the contest is whenever they reach 130 submissions, and it does cost $30  to enter, but everyone who enters will get extensive personal feedback on their piece. To learn more about their contest, go here.

Pieces filed through their general submissions manager are still eligible for the Editors Choice Award.  The award is $1000 and is given out annually. They do not pay contributors whose work is featured on the site, but if your work is then chosen for one of their anthologies, they will pay the contributor $40.

The stories they publish must be between 300-1000 words in length. They do not accept erotica but are open to work that contains other adult themes including sex, politics, and violence.

To get a feel for what they have are currently publishing, go here. They do not accept previously published work. Authors can submit work up to once a month. All submissions must be made through their electronic submissions manager.
