Fiction Southeast is an online literary journal dedicated to flash fiction. The mission of Fiction Southeast is to showcase fiction from today’s most promising writers, and to create an online literary journal that allows readers to quickly and easily access quality writing from their laptops, iPads, and cell phones. Since electronic reading devices (and to some extent laptops for that matter) make reading long pieces of writing less enjoyable, we have chosen to dedicate the journal to flash fiction.
What is Flash Fiction?
Flash fiction (also known as sudden fiction or microfiction) is one of the oldest forms of writing. While definitions of flash fiction vary, it is typically described as a shorter, more concise form of storytelling (somewhere between poetry and short fiction). In light of the journal’s purposes and objectives, the editors of Fiction Southeast have chosen to define flash fiction as fiction which is approximately 1000 words or less in length.
