    [Display Site] Flash Fiction World

    Has anyone heard of Flash Fiction World? I got a flash piece accepted there today and have this nagging suspicion that it's a scam. There wasn't any submission fee, but could it still be one of those places that just accepts everything? I don't want to list it on future cover letters and look like an idiot.

    Unfortunately, looks like it's not a very legitimate place.

    according to duotrope (https://duotrope.com/market_7392.aspx):

    "Acceptances 94.74 % (6 avg. days per acceptance)
    Rejections 5.26 % (30 avg. days per rejection)"
