Condensed to Flash World Classics Anthology

A project of Vestal Review (see other related projects).

Do not submit here! This project is permanently closed to submissions. We provide the following information as an archive.


"Condensed to Flash: World Classics," an electronic and print anthology for the people who love concise writing that is intense, entertaining and educational. This anthology will feature world classics condensed to 500 words or fewer. Interpret the theme broadly and imaginatively. We are not interested in summaries, but in literary stories that stand on their own, with a beginning, middle and end. You can add a twist or two-a preferable option-but the plot has to be well-recognized. Classics from the public domain only, please. They can be either novels or short stories, but you must identify the source.

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.

  • 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.
