Erika Dreifus’ Guide to Flash Nonfiction Markets
January 30, 2012 § 4 Comments
Erika Dreifus, the blogger voice behind Practicing Writing, researched and assembled a list of flash nonfiction markets last week. She came up with 26 different markets, including a few which (like Brevity) offer payment to the writers published.
There are more than 26 markets of course — as Erika herself notes “this list by no means includes every journal or magazine that might publish your piece of flash nonfiction. For the most part, I’ve omitted publications that specify only that submitted essays should run ‘no longer than’ or ‘up to’ 5,000 or 8,000 words. It’s entirely possible that the editors of these publications will welcome something more along the lines of 500 or 800 words.”
Indeed. It has been our observation that many of the larger, most-respected literary magazines are as open to very good flash work as they are to conventional length nonfiction.
Erika’s list is a great resource, and we thank her for taking the time and sharing the result:
