Flooding for National Flash-Fiction Day 2013

Yes, it's that time again, and the journal originally created for National Flash-Fiction Day will take to the virtual airwaves once again with a fourth edition.

The aim is simple, wherever you are in the world, we want your best flash-fictions. The word limit is 500 words, but that's the only rule. Any subject, any genre, any style, any perspective, anything as long as it's flash.

Submissions close at the 23.59, Thursday 20th June 2013 (BST), so don't delay.

The stories will be posted regularly throughout the day on National Flash-Fiction Day itself, Saturday 22nd June, providing you with a constant diet of brand new flash-fictions to fill your day.

Please paste your story into the body of your email and send it to (A maximum of 3 pieces per author, please. Previously published stories are okay, but please include a citation to the original version.)

We can't wait to read your work!

Please note: Because of the flood of entries we receive, the editors will be unable to provide feedback on stories or give reasons for rejections. There are many reasons other than the quality of your story (a topic which has already been accepted, a topic which is over-used, veering more towards poetry than the editor likes, veering less towards poetry than the editor likes, personal taste) so please don't be disheartened or offended if your piece doesn't make it in.


  1. I have tried submitting but I received an undeliverable email back from the email address given here.

  2. Hi Miranda,
    We've had plenty of submissions and no other reports of problems. But, try sending to instead, and I'll forward it over.
