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:

    I’m a total fan of Erica and have been for more than a few years. I read “The Practicing Writing,” compilation every time it hits my email box and have sent it out to many friends. Erica keeps us in touch with markets and other writers. I look forward to her send-outs. (Her collection of short stories, “Quiet Americans,” is wonderful.

    Thanks for this list. I’m a nurse by profession and am interested in submitting to AJN. If you didn’t send this list along, I would not have thought about it.

  • Erika is one of those secret jewels you want to keep socked away, but then you make yourself share with other writers so you don’t look like the Grinch. Thanks for the helps as always, Erika!
