Lake Michigan and Navy Pier. Photo by Judy DarleyFractured Lit invite you to submit flash fiction to the Fractured Lit Flash Fiction Prize.

The closing date for entries is 18th July 2021.

Guest judge K-Ming Chang will choose three winning stories from a shortlist. All entries will be considered for publication.

The winner will receive $3000 and publication, while the 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive publication and $300 and $200, respectively.
K-Ming Chang is a Kundiman fellow, a Lambda Literary Award finalist, and a National Book Foundation 5 Under 35 honoree. She is the author of the New York Times Editors’ Choice novel Bestiary (One World/Random House, 2020), which was longlisted for the Center for Fiction First Novel Prize and the PEN/Faulkner Award. Her short story collection, Gods of Want, is forthcoming from One World in June 2022.

I recommend you submit work that embraces the publication’s tagline: fiction that lingers long after the flash.

In exchange for a $20 reading fee, you may submit up to two stories of 1,000 words or fewer each per entry, set within the same document.

Find the full guidelines and submit your flash fiction here.

Good luck!
