Call for Flash Fiction: Flash Fiction International

International flash anthology: We’re looking for stories under 750 words for Flash Fiction International, due from distinguished publisher W.W. Norton in 2014.

We generally prefer recent, previously published work (recent=within the last ten years or so), but we will also consider unpublished submissions. The stories must be in English, originally or in translation. Limit of 3 stories.

Editors for the Norton Sudden and Flash Fiction book series, James Thomas and Robert Shapard, are joined by Chris Merrill, director of the U of Iowa International Writing Program.

We would be grateful for any leads to authors we should read, besides yourself. Also, please let us know if you know any good, brief quotes that can be related to very short fiction (for example, Friedrich
Nietzsche said, “It is my ambition to say in ten sentences what others say in a whole book.”)

Send submissions by email attachment to:

james45387ATyahooDOTcom (Change AT to @ and DOT to . ), or
send print copy to:

James Thomas,
99 W. 3rd St. #5,
Xenia, OH, U.S.A. 45385.

Deadline is August 15.
