Flash Frog is…

a new online flash fiction magazine featuring stories under 1,000 words. We like our stories like we like our dart frogs: small, brightly colored, and deadly to the touch.

And just to make sure our stories are as vibrant as the Dendrobates tinctorius azureus, each one is accompanied by original artwork created just for that piece.

Flash Frog pays $25 per story and publishes a new one every Monday. Subs are always open, so check the guidelines and send us stories that poison.

We will nominate for Pushcart Prize, Best of the Net, Best Small Fictions, and Best Microfiction.

Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Instagram, and for any questions please email flashfroglitmag@gmail.com.
