Editorial Focus

From the editor: “My goal was to establish a high-quality, paying market where emerging authors and poets can gain professional experience alongside respected authors. We are looking for quality writing and artwork from any source, regardless of past publication history. We set the bar high in order to encourage young writers to continue to excel and develop their talents, and to maintain a publication to which established professionals are excited to submit.”

Tips From the Editor

Spark is looking for great writing that tells a compelling story, regardless of length. Even very short pieces, like flash fiction, should tell a story, though there will certainly be fewer dramatic elements developed than we’d see in a longer piece or novel. The presence of “story” is what distinguishes flash fiction from “vignette.”
