Submission Guidelines

We are currently open for submissions to our May issue.

Here’s the basics (some are new):

  • 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.
  • Submissions only via Submittable.
  • Simultaneous submits are cool, just do us the solid and withdrawal it if needed.
  • We will reply to everyone early in February.
  • We are excited to open up a new queue dedicated to CNF.
