This Week’s Flash Fiction Contests, Markets, and a Little Advice on Writing

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.

Upcoming Contests


  • 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
