If you sent a story in and haven't heard from us yet, you will soon.

Keep an eye here on for updates and if you have any questions, send an e-mail to

Again, thank you!


  1. 45? Great job! Have fun reading and choosing the ones you want. If the average quality is good I suggest sorting by theme and considering multiple volumes.

  2. That's still only 45,000 words if they average 1K a piece. If you assume only half of them are up to snuff, that's not a big volume.

  3. I imagine most stories come in pretty close to the max of 1500 actually - it's tough to pack a complete tale into the lower end of the range. Call it an average of 1100-1200? >20k words is a reasonable novella - seems OK to me for a flash fiction collection, though it might be worthwhile going back to selected authors for a second story if they're concerned about length.
