Response time is 4 - 6 weeks. If you wish to prioritize your submission, consider using our Tip Jar.
Each submission must be accompanied by an $8.00 reading fee which, if your submission is accepted for publication, will enter you in the Best of MFR competition for a prize of $500 in each of the four categories. Winners announced December 2019.
Please send one submission at a time and wait for a response before sending another.
We prefer not to burden categories with a strict word count. By its very nature, the flash fiction is a form which provokes much debate over length. MOST submissions will probably come in around the 250 - 500 word mark. Shall we say, anything under 1,000 words which YOU consider a 'flash fiction'? (There's always the short story category or the even more controversial prose poetry category.)
