The Vestal Review
From the Editor
Vestal Review is the oldest magazine dedicated exclusively to flash fiction. It has been published continuously since March 2000. Vestal Review is a semi-annual perfect-bound print magazine with a Web presence. 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.
Launched in March of 2000, Vestal Review is the world’s oldest magazine dedicated exclusively to flash fiction.
The VERA (VEstal Review Award) is the award for a flash fiction story under 500 words published by any magazine in print or online in the previous year. The winning selection receives a prize of $100 and a publication in Vestal Review, and the runner-up entry gets publication in Vestal Review at our usual terms.
