50 Flash Markets




So as we close out the year, I thought I'd take a momentary break from an author Q&A and highlight some of my favorite flash markets--and also maybe help out writers with finding new places to sub or just help organize open/close dates, word count limits, etc. I know some of us writers are trying to reach end-of-the-year submission goals, and others may be kicking off new year's resolution submission goals.


Please keep in mind that this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many amazing lit mags out there publishing flash that are unfortunately not on this list. Also, many of these lit mags publish much more than flash, but for my purposes here, that is the focus.

And of course, before submitting anywhere, definitely read all submission guidelines.
