Flash Glass 16

A project of Glassworks

About

In glassworking, "flashed glass" is a specific technique by which color is not simply added to the batch, but is created by layering, "thus opening almost unlimited possibilities of variation." As a result, the glass "allows light to shine through but prevents inquisitive eyes from invading people's privacy." In writing, flash pieces (short works of fiction, micro essays, or prose poems) offer a similar effect. Through extremely brief storytelling, truth can shine through while still leaving much to the reader's imagination. In both cases, the creation of the flash "requires deliberate control, experience and craftsmanship" on the part of the glassblower and of the writer.

Before Submitting

We cannot guarantee that the information on this page is correct. It is not unusual for publications to evolve or close without notice. We do our best to keep up, but it isn't always possible. Just remember…

  • Always read the full guidelines provided by the publisher.
  • Try to read at least one previous publication to get a better idea of what the editor would like to see.
  • Unless the publisher's guidelines state otherwise, always use industry standard manuscript formatting.
  • Be professional, patient, and persistent.
