Vestal Review is a semi-annual perfect-bound print magazine with a Web presence, devoted to what we consider an underrepresented type of fiction: flash (or short-short) stories. A good flash, replete with a cohesive plot, rich language and enticing imagery, is perhaps the hardest type of fiction to write. A good flash is so condensed that it borderlines poetry. A good flash engages your mind not only for the short duration of its read, but for a long time after. Vestal Review is an eclectic magazine, open to all genres except children's stories and hard science fiction. We are blessed with a deluge of submissions and therefore are very selective.
