Here is our growing list of Flash Fiction Magazines to submit your work to. Flash fiction has become ever more popular in the last few years. It’s a fiction that can entertain and grab your interest as much as longer pieces of writing, and flash fiction tends to be very challenging to write, but if you do write flash fiction here is a long list of magazines to submit your work to. 

These flash fiction magazines have been collecting on our site for 10 years. We have a large stock of them, so some of these magazines may be brand new and some may be out of date. If you find an out of date magazine, please leave us a comment. We we will take action. 

We hope this list helps you publish your flash fiction, and helps for you to find flash fiction magazines to read. Good luck on submitting and publishing your work. 

971 MENU

971 MENU

971 MENU is a purely online not-for-profit venture. We publish whenever we have enough work to justify an issue. That means five pieces. The minimum time between issues is thirty days, and attempts are made to coincide with the first of the month. We publish fiction and nonfiction of any length and sometimes accidentally other stuff. 971 MENU began in September 2006 as a publisher of fiction under 1000 words. We are pleased with our work, and we are quite pleased with the high-quality work we have been fortunate enough to publish, but we no longer limit ourselves in terms of length. However, your chance of seeing a thirty-page epic here is fairly slim. We still put out the short stuff, and some that's a little bit longer.
