The Submission Grinder, milling your submissions into something useful

Thrilling Words

Thrilling Word’s mission is to promote episodic fiction. Instead of publishing standalone speculative fiction short stories, we publish multiple flash fiction stories written by the same author. Stories that are connected by author, theme or fictional universe. That’s why we ask for a pair of related stories with a total word count of two thousand words or less.
