Flashers Short fiction nuggets to go with your coffee

At Seizure, short-form work is living large. Flashers is the online home of Australian flash fiction.

Each week we publish work between 50 and 500 words that could be written in an hour and read in a minute. We are looking for short, sharp snippets of prose. But flash fiction is so much more than a quick-fix for the time-hungry wordaholic. Flash fiction attracts writers and readers for its peculiar challenges – and authors have to make every word count.

Accepted pieces will have an accompanying illustration by a volunteer artist that matches and complements the writing. In 2015, thanks to the Australia Council, we are able to pay our Flasher contributors $50 an entry.


If you have a flashtastic fiction to share, you can submit your work here.
