Notification: Although we try to notify submitters within 6 months, we are a very small publication and may take much longer. You are always free to submit your story elsewhere while you wait to hear from us.
Rights*: You grant Fiction Attic Press the right to publish your story online at fictionattic.com and fictionattic.substack,com, and to publish an audio version of your story on Substack. After your story is published in Fiction Attic, you retain the rights to publish your story anywhere you like after three months. We only ask that you acknowledge Fiction Attic as the first publisher of the work.
Simultaneous submissions are totally fine. Please just withdraw your submission and let us know it is accepted elsewhere. We'll be happy for you!
On rare occasions we do accept published stories, as long as you own the rights; please let us know in your cover letter if the story was previously published.
We are happy to link to your website or social media profile in order to help you further engage with your readers.
Fee: Submit one flash fiction ($3.99) or submit up to 4 flash fictions ($5.99)*
Our submission fees enable us to pay writers and keep the site running.
