Multiple entries are fine. Simultaneous submissions are fine; if a flash is accepted elsewhere, please notify us via a note on the submission within Submittable. Winning flash must not be (scheduled to be) published in print, ebook, or internet before August 2017.

All entries considered for publication in Storm Cellar.

What is a flash?

  • Shorter than 1000 words
  • Not more than 5 pages
  • May contain fiction, nonfiction, non-letter marks (images), or some combination
  • May bend genre, form, brains

We encourage submissions by women, people of color, indigenous, disabled, lgbtq+, poor, and members of other under-represented groups. Authors who because of financial hardship cannot pay the entry fee should email the editors with a brief statement of their need so that we can arrange an entry.

Contest will be decided by the editors. Close friends, family, current & formers students, and employers of the editors may not enter. While not a member of the CLMP, we strive to achieve a similar level of transparency and virtue.

All proceeds will go to prizes and production costs. No fees may be refunded. “Extra” flashes within entries will not be read. We may disqualify entrants on the basis of harassing behavior. Entrants will be notified of their contest outcome by email, on or before June 30, 2017.
