Kathryn Hello everyone!

I am currently writing my first flash fiction and so was very glad to see this particular thread.

If anyone feels inclined towards creating a new list that includes paying markets and addresses, I would personally feel very grateful.:)

Welcome, Kathryn.

I think most of the markets above pay either in copies or cash or both. As for the addresses, google their websites and follow their submission guidelines.

Donald | 1 comments Thanks for all the recommendations everyone! I've been writing a lot of stories under 1,000 words lately, and want to start getting them out there.

Marc Nash (sulci) | 98 comments Am I wrong in thinking most of these are US based?

Ether Books in the UK is a publisher of flash and short fiction to people's phones

http://duotrope.com is a good portal for a search of magazines

Friday flash is a community of writers who write weekly flash fiction stories (1000 words or less and it's not compulsory to write one every week!) then post on their blogs/websites and tweet links to them so that we all read & comment on each others & have ours read in turn. Good way to bring traffic to your site, new readers to your work and meet other writers.

Google Friday Flash Collector, for their official site.

Robert Vaughan | 2 comments Hi everyone, I was recently asked to be the senior flash fiction editor at JMWW (by Jen Michalski, a great boss and writer!) Also I read all the short fiction for a newer magazine, Lost in Thought http://www.lostinthoughtmag.com/, and my partner who locates all the art for the zine is Kyle Schruder. There is also a magazine called Thrice which has the same concept- flash and art, and just published a piece of mine in it's July issue: http://www.thricefiction.com/pdf/Thri....
