Now and again, writers ignore the length requirements for the magazine and we get submissions on the shorter side that are painful to reject. Sometimes we publish them anyway.
However, it became clear that we weren’t accommodating a lot of talented authors. In recognition of the abundance of brilliant short-short story writers out there, we’re excited to announce a new project: Shooter Flash. Now, we have a forum exclusively for authors of prose shorter than 1,000 words, with a rolling competition to spotlight one story each month on Shooter’s website. In addition to online publication, winning writers will receive £50, and their work will be included in an annual anthology sent to all of Shooter’s subscribers.
For guidelines and further details, please visit https://shooterlitmag.com/shooter-flash. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. And poets, no need to feel left out – the 2021 Shooter Poetry Competition is also currently underway.
We can’t wait to read your work – good luck!
