Submissions Open: August 1, 2017
What to Submit We are looking for flash fiction stories and photographs that depict goodness in humanity. Show us the strength of the human spirit when faced with hardship and setback. Show us people who are not superheroes or saints or angels. Show us strength in frailty. Give us upbeat plot twists. Give us images of hope and joy. Give us stories that thrill, stories of first love and undying love, stories of mysterious strangers arriving in town, and stories that make us laugh out loud. Create magical worlds where trees walk down Main Street or where cheeky children meet late at night to conspire against parents and teachers. Stories that make us want to read all the way to the end. Most of all, entertain us.
