Original Flash Fiction Submission Form

Original flash fiction submissions are closed. Our next submission cycle opens March 1 and runs through March 31. Accepted authors will be notified by April 15.

To keep up with our paid submissions windows, you can subscribe to our occasional writers’ newsletter or follow us on Twitter, Facebook, or Threads.

We are able to pay for original flash fiction through the kind generosity of our Patreon supporters. Your donations allow us to accept and publish original speculative fiction at a time when publishing opportunities for new writers are extremely limited.

Please direct your questions related to original fiction to [email protected].

Please see our overview for non-paying opportunities with MetaStellar. We accept reprints, essays, and reviews throughout the year.
