Flash Fiction: Chapbook Publication Opportunity 

 

In order to celebrate National Flash Fiction Day, TSS Publishing is opening its doors to submissions from 24th June – 25th July 2017. Submissions sent before or after this date will not be read.

We will be publishing one Flash Fiction chapbook as part of our short fiction chapbooks series. See more here.

Our preference is for literary fiction, but we are open to other genres and styles as long as the characters are convincing and the plot compelling. Please read some of the short fiction on the site before submitting.

There is no reading fee.
