    Suggestions for Flash Fiction Markets

    If anyone has any suggestions or recommendations for flash fiction markets then post them here and I'll add them to our list. Also, if anyone has any previous experience with any of the markets all ready on the list (or that aren't on the list) then post them, too.

    Daily Science Fiction is a great online magazine.

    They publish Flash Fiction Monday through Thursday and a longer piece on Fridays.

    A few notes on the list (checked on May 2):

    Duotrope- now a paid site, not sure if you want to note that or not

    Flash Markets at Flash Fiction Chronicles- link is broken, should be: http://www.everydayfiction.com/flash...ash-markets-2/

    Flashshot seems to have ended --> http://www.gwthomas.org/flashshotindex.htm

    GUD: closed for submissions currently

    Mslexia's link has changed: http://mslexia.co.uk/index.php (submission's link is: http://mslexia.co.uk/info/submit.php)

    My Weekly seems to have reopened submissions to all: http://www.jbwb.co.uk/weekly.htm

    Night Train has also ceased publication

    Pedestal Magazine is closed to submissions currently. http://www.thepedestalmagazine.com/submitguidelines.php

    The People's Friend also accepts serialized stories, if you want to mention

    SnipLits has gone under.

    Strange Horizons now pays 8 cents/word, but does not have a minimum.

    That's Life submissions page is now located here: http://www.thatslife.com.au/contact-us.asp

    ....and the rest are all verified!


    EDIT: Also, I found this resource for SpecFic today while looking around for a place to submit a story: http://www.cs.cmu.edu/~mslee/mag.html Seems like a good resource

    Haha, no problem. I saw it hadn't been updated in a while so I thought 'why not?' Glad if it helps anyone else.
