At a high level, our goals are pretty simple. To serve flash fiction readers and writers with a professional, sustainable market for flash fiction stories. To promote the general population's reading of great short stories in general and of great flash fiction in particular. FICTION: They’re very short, but they are still stories. That means the best ones have strong, interesting characters, plots, and (to some extent, at least) settings. We’re not that concerned about genre. Many of us have a fondness for science fiction and fantasy, but we also like literary fiction; and in any case, great flash stories aren’t always easily classified. If you wrote it, and you love it, then submit it.
