What is Flash Fiction?

Flash fiction is generally defined as a story comprised of 1000 words or fewer–in fact, many flash fiction contests challenge an author to compose a fully-fledged story in under 500 words!

Just because a flash fiction piece is short doesn’t mean that it’s not worthy of publication. At the Short Story and Flash Fiction Society, we strive to promote these bite-sized stories as a legitimate literary genre. Whether you like horror, thrillers, sci-fi, fantasy, or contemporary, you’ll be able to find flash fiction stories that suit your tastes!
