What is “flash fiction?” We define it as fiction under 1,000 words, well-written, and told concisely. All genres are acceptable except fan fiction. We also plan on publishing an annual Best of Blogcritics Fiction e-book, so get writing!
All submissions must be no longer than 1,000 words. Got a short, sweet 500-word microfic? Great. A 9,000 word almost-novella? (If you submit it in serial, one submission at a time, we’ll consider it if it’s really, really good.) Please provide a maturity rating on your story, and for now we are not accepting anything explicit (sorry, guys).
All submissions must be final draft, as in publishable with a few minor edits. Any submission that is not will be sent back rejected or requesting that you re-write and resubmit.
All published submissions must be original (no reposts from your writing blog or other fiction websites). Once published on Blogcritics, you may repost elsewhere with the attribution “originally published on Blogcritics.” This is critical, since Blogcritics publishes only original content. You retain all copyright on your work.
All Flash Fiction submissions are just that: submissions. We reserve the right to edit or reject (or send back for more work) any submission not ready for publication on the site. So give it your best shot (and by that we mean professional, publishable quality, not your first draft!).
Interested? Current Blogcritics writers are already eligible to submit, and if you’re not a Blogcritics contributor, please sign up, and provide us with a page or two of your fiction-writing mojo. We’ll respond promptly!
