Hi all! If you’re a fan of flash fiction, fall 2013 is shaping up to be a pretty exciting time. Let’s see what’s out there this week.
- The Driftless Review is hosting a flash fiction contest with a top prize of $500. Submissions are open until 31 December 2013.
- One of my favorite takes on our genre, Sips Card, is accepting submissions for its two-year anniversary issue. If you’ve got a story, send it their way by 31 January 2014.
- If you’ve got kids, you may have heard of Akashic Books. They’re accepting submissions for three different ongoing flash fiction categories, which makes them great supporters of our genre.
Advice on Writing
- The Editor of the Best American Short Story Anthology, Heidi Pitlor, on what makes a good short piece. This is one of my favorite compilations, so I highly suggest you check out what Heidi has to say.
