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.
Guidelines For Submissions
Please submit 1-2 flashes of 950 words or fewer in a single document via Submittable per reading period.
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We do not publish previously published material.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. If you have submitted more than one flash, send us a note via Submittable advising us which piece has been accepted.
To get a flavour for what we like, please read our current issue.
