an online flash fiction magazine established in January 2021, featuring stories under 1,000 words. And 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.
Each January, we hold The Blue Frog, our annual flash fiction contest, which hosts a different theme, Guest Judge and Guest Artist each year. $700 awarded in prizes.
Every October, we invite you to enjoy Flash Frogtober, a month of nothing but ghost stories!
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.

And of course, if you’re able to support us with a dollar or two, it goes such a long way in helping us continue to be a paying market.
