>I don’t know if they take flash yet (I’ll write to the editors and let you know) but they look interesting:

They do take micro fiction and flash submissions. Here’s what Darien Cavanaugh, the co-editor, said:

Yes, we do accept micro and flash fiction. We have no minimum word requirement. However, I wouldn’t suggest submitting micro or flash for the fiction contest (if you were considering it). In the past, judges have tended to shy away from it for the contests. But absolutely for general submissions. We usually have one or two flash fiction or prose poetry pieces in each issue.”

Yemassee, the literary journal of the University of South Carolina’s MFA creative writing program, is currently seeking submissions of fiction, poetry, and nonfiction. We are a relatively small journal and are very interested in finding fresh, new voices to publish alongside those of established authors.

Yemassee was founded in 1993 and has published writing by James Dickey, Susan Ludvigson, Robert Coover, Virgil Suarez, William Price Fox, Kwame Dawes, Ron Rash, Nikky Finney, and many others, as well as interviews with writers such as Derek Walcott, Robert Olen Butler, Kazuo Ishiguro, George Singleton, Leah Stewart, Vona Groarke, and Percival Everett. Our upcoming issue will feature a short story by Chris Offutt and an interview with him.

In addition to general submissions, which we read year round, we also accept submissions for our annual William Richey Short Story Contest and Pocataligo Poetry Contest.

For more information, please visit our website at Yemassee Journal
We look forward to reading your work.

About smokelong

Our Mission: SmokeLong Quarterly is dedicated to bringing the best flash fiction to the web on a quarterly basis, whether writtenwidely published authors, or those new to the craft. The term "smoke-long" comes from the Chinese, who noted that reading a piece of flash takes about the same length of time as smoking a cigarette. All the work we publish is precisely that—about a smoke long.
