Flash Flood is National Flash Fiction Day's curated online flash fiction journal. We open for submissions for one week each year. During that week, we receive over 1,000 stories and select our favourites for publication on National Flash Fiction Day. On that day, we post a flood of flash, with a new story appearing every five-to ten minutes for a 24-hour flash extravaganza. We welcome submissions from all over the world.

Voluntary Fees: This project accepts voluntary fees for "tip jar" submissions.

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. Duotrope listings do not imply endorsement or recommendation of the project being listed. Before submitting, you should use your own judgment to determine whether the project meets your standards.

  • 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.
