About

We want succinct speculative stories. Flex your writing muscles and send us flash fiction. Each month Apparition Lit holds a flash fiction contest. We’ll be looking for previously unpublished stories that reflect the artwork we’ve chose for each month. Flash fiction should be a complete story, not an excerpt of a larger work.

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.
