First and foremost, we want a story. A complete, interesting story. We do not publish vignettes or character sketches. We publish flash fiction, pure and simple. All genres, no content restrictions. We want your science fiction, fantasy, horror, mystery, drama, literary works, satire, or anything else you can come up with or mix together. The only rule? A story in 1000 words or less. The more original, the better.
Good flash fiction is like a freeze frame—a snapshot of a real story about real characters. The word count is low, so many of the details are left to the reader to fill in, but they’re there. Flash fiction is not the same as a vignette, or a scene; it hints at much more. It’s also not a character sketch; something must happen to move the plot or characters along, whether internally or externally.
Give us something real (though not necessarily realistic), unique, and interesting.
