The editors of Fiction Southeast are interested in flash fiction (fiction of approximately 1000 words or less), particularly from writers born and raised in the south. However, while we are interested in fiction that depicts a variety of southern traditions and landscapes, we DO NOT wish to limit the journal to only southern writers. Writers from other parts of the country are encouraged to submit their work. Though we hope for creative and innovative writing, we don’t prefer one particular style or genre of writing. The only criterion we look for is quality.
The journal is published online two times a year (in the fall and spring). The submission deadline for the fall issue is September 1st. The submission deadline for the spring issue is March 1st.To submit your work, please use our Online Submission Form. Previously published stories and simultaneously submissions ARE welcome. Individual shorts should be approximately 1000 words or less. Submissions should be in .rtf, .doc, or .pdf format. Previously published stories and simultaneously submissions ARE welcome. Feel free to submit multiple stories, but please DO NOT submit multiple Word documents as one submission or one text document containing multiple stories. Instead, please submit each story as a SEPARATE submission (so that you complete an individual submission process for each story). We also accept reviews of short story collections (preferably collections of short-shorts). Authors retain all rights and copyright to their works. Fiction Southeast does NOT request one-time, non-exclusive rights to publish your work. Like many journals, Fiction Southeast maintains a mailing list to ensure that readers and contributors are notified when new issues are published. To join our mailing list, click here.
