Flash fiction is the reason that the Old Soldier publishes the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette. Yes, a visitor to this magazine will find commentaries on the world we live in, articles on blogging and writing and photo studies of the nude female form. But without flash fiction, this publication would have no reason for being.
I like to say that this magazine is the online Playboy Magazine for short story readers and writers. That’s pretty accurate.
Flash fiction is a language all its own. It is the language of brevity. It is the language of conciseness. Above all it is the language of suggestion. There are plenty of examples of this second language on this blog.
Read. Study. Write.
The Submissions tab for flash fiction is at the top of the page.
