New Flash Fiction Review was founded in 2014 by author/editor Meg Pokrass. We are an online magazine devoted to flash fiction and prose poetry. 

We prefer submissions to have an easy-to-read font and double-line spacing.

We do not publish previously published material. We do not accept submissions via email. Any submissions sent via email will be deleted unread. 

Simultaneous submissions are encouraged. If your piece has been accepted elsewhere, simply withdraw it from our Submissions manager. 

To get a flavor for what we like, please read our current issue, read Meg’s work, read the Wigleaf Top 50, Smokelong, Cheap Pop, the Bath Flash Fiction Award, and so many more! Read Audra Kerr Brown’s Wigleaf Top 50 story The Way of the Woods. Read Al Kratz’s Second Place story at Bath Flash Fiction Award You Have So Many More Choices Than Fight or Flight. Read and love Flash! Share the love with us! Check out Al Kratz’s articles on Beginnings and Endings. Check out previous NFFR stories that have been in or nominated for the anthologies. Check out Al’s perusal through NFFR history here and here

We have created this Submittable queue as a dedicated lane for writers who have not previously published any writing in a print or online journal. If the fit is right, we would love for New Flash Fiction to be your first publication. Our additional guidelines for this are pretty simple. 750 word max and Simultaneous Submits are fine.


  • 750 word max. We’d like to emphasize the Flash of New Flash Fiction.
  • 1 story per submission period.
  • We don’t accept previously published material.
  • Simultaneous submits are cool, just withdraw it if needed.
  • We will be open for all of October or until we reach our cap.
  • We will reply to everyone early in November. Thank you for trusting us with your work!
