On this humid morning, where the threat of rain persists, I am happy to present this month’s roundup of super resources including markets with and without deadlines, themed and un-themed submission calls, and a plethora of helpful articles related to writing.
And I’m not one for writing conferences but if you are, then check out this list for Sep’22.
In addition to my usual resources, I have another one for you to add to your list – I present the brilliant Flash Fiction Flash Newsletter! It is The Newsletter for Flash Literature Writers run by Pamelyn Casto.
From the blurb: “The newsletter devoted to markets, contests, and publishing news for short-short literature 1,500 words or fewer (including flash fiction, short-short fiction, sudden fiction, prose poetry, haibun, flash memoirs, flash creative nonfiction, flash plays, and podcasts).”
To subscribe, you may: “… send a blank email message to FlashFictionFlash+Subscribe@groups.io (be sure to include the plus sign before “subscribe” in the address). Or go to https://groups.io/g/FlashFictionFlash and follow the instructions there.
The newsletter is free and is sent out around the first of each month. I’ve been sending this volunteer newsletter for more than twenty years now. Amazing. Time really *does* fly!”
I recently stumbled upon this newsletter and it’s got an exhaustive list of markets for flash writers. Since I have taken to writing more flash pieces these days, it’s been a great find!
Apart from that, I enjoyed this post from the inimitable Anne R. Allen about Lewis Caroll’s short stories!
