UPDATE: We have moved submissions back to Submittable. Please see our updated guidelines for more details.
Hello faithful freeze frame fiction subscribers! Thanks for still being with us. After a long break, we are finally back and accepting submissions. The plan is to stick with the semi-annual schedule we adopted before our hiatus. We have switched to a new submission manager, but otherwise, not much has changed. We still want to read dense, interesting fiction. And we still want to pay you to publish it.
Tell us a complete story in 1000 words or less. Any genre. Any theme. Any content. Make it weird. Just make sure it’s a complete story, rather than a vignette or scene. Give it an actual ending and real, believable characters. Freak us out. Make us feel uncomfortable, or sad, or maybe even reassured.
Please check out our submission guidelines first: https://freezeframefiction.com/write/submission-guidelines-faq/
Also, note the new submission manager: https://greensubmissions.com/159729/fff/index.php
We look forward to reading your writing, and publishing stories we love.
volume iv is now live!
Come read excellent flash fiction and look at awesome illustrations!
In case you haven’t heard, our first special issue is now live on the website! It’s nine stories, all told in experimental narrative forms.
There’s a lot of variety in this volume: from humorous to literary, from a math quiz to a story written in computer code—and even one told through shopping receipts! There’s something for everyone, so please stop by and read.
Our second special volume officially has a theme: volume 2 will be young adult (YA) flash fiction. Submissions will open on the 15th, so get your YA stories ready!
For our themed volumes only! We’ve decided to take submissions for cover art. Don’t worry: Luke will still be illustrating all of our regular volumes. We just thought we’d try something new for the themed volumes. Please spread the word.
Pay is $10 per accepted piece + ebook copy for non-exclusive rights.
Curious about submission statistics? These are as of 15-December, the end of the volume iii window. Total subs since joining Submittable: 752. This includes volumes i–iii, plus the experimental volume.
