Journal Vestal Review

Vestal Review is the oldest magazine dedicated exclusively to flash fiction. It has been published continuously since March 2000. Vestal Review is a semi-annual perfect-bound print magazine with a Web presence. A good flash, replete with a cohesive plot, rich language and enticing imagery, is perhaps the hardest type of fiction to write. A good flash is so condensed that it borderlines poetry. A good flash engages your mind not only for the short duration of its read, but for a long time after.

Journal Virginia Quarterly Review

VQR seeks work that is conscious of language without being self-conscious, that pulls readers in with drama and emotional risk, rather than holding them at arm's length with gimmickry and tricks. We value writing that uses intensely focused language to affect the way that readers see the world.
