Scribble is an exciting online venue for exceptional flash and short fiction. This eclectic journal is open to literary fiction and all fiction genres with a literary approach.We accept unsolicited submissions all year long and publish 3-5 short stories bi-monthly (every two months).
Rather than beautifully-written vignettes, the editors of Scribble enjoy beautifully-written literary and general fiction stories that feature a character or characters who change somehow, for some reason, by the end of the story, or a character who does or experiences something unexpected. Please note that we publish pieces that are 2,000 words or less.

At Zizzle we look for literary flash fiction that will surprise, move, and amuse both young and older imaginative minds. We like fiction that dives deep into meaning and resists banality. We believe the moral, if any, of a great story should evolve naturally from within and not be imposed from without. We embrace new perspectives to the nuanced joys and tensions in kids’ daily lives and imaginations. We are open to pieces that defy traditional storytelling. Tasteful humor and a strong voice always appeal to us.
Before submitting, listen to a selection of our short stories. Subscribe to Zizzle's newsletter at zizzlelit.com/sign-up to enjoy FREE access to our audiobooks.
Thimble Literary Magazine is based on the belief that poetry is like armor. Like a thimble, it may be small and seem insignificant, but it will protect us when we are most vulnerable.
