Flash fiction, pure and simple. No genre or content restrictions. 1000 words or less. Possible themed submission windows in the future.
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. Give us something real (though not necessarily realistic), unique, and interesting.
