What to Submit We are looking for flash fiction stories and photographs and stories that show humanity in its best possible light, but also show our fallibility. We want stories and images that quicken the heart and search for compassion when people fail to do the right thing -- because sometimes the right thing is more difficult. Show the strength of the human spirit when hardship and setback befall us. Show us people who are not superheroes or saints or angels. Show us strength in frailty. Give us upbeat plot twists.
