Ends on

In celebration of our upcoming 100th issue of Flash Fiction Online, we're looking for stories on the theme of "ONE HUNDRED." Give us stories of centenarians on adventures! Tell us tales of a hundred-year storm! Raise the temperature to 100 degrees (Fahrenheit? Celsius?)! Write us a story that takes place in 100 seconds! The possibilities are endless -- they just have to somehow involve the number 100 in a way that's integral to the story.


This submission window will be open during the same time frames as our regular monthly window through the month of October. Submissions will be evaluated each month and receive either a rejection or a hold notice. Final decisions on these second-round stories will be made in early November. Multiple submissions are allowed for this call so long as each story fits the theme, and you may submit to this call while also submitting an ORIGINAL and a REPRINT submission.

ALL STORIES SUBMITTED THROUGH THIS PAGE MUST FIT THE THEME! If your story does not somehow involve the number 100, please submit through our ORIGINAL or REPRINT submission page instead.

ANONYMOUS SUBMISSIONS: Do not include your name, address, email, or other identifying information on your manuscript (header, byline, file name, etc). This allows our First Readers to evaluate your story based on the work alone.

PAYMENT & RIGHTS FOR ORIGINAL FICTION: Flash Fiction Online pays $80 per story for first electronic rights for original (previously unpublished) fiction, with 6 months exclusivity, as well as a non-exclusive one-time right to publish the stories in an anthology. The author retains all other rights. Original stories must not have been previously published anywhere, including a blog or on Patreon. Payment is made via PayPal (preferred) or mailed as a check.

PAYMENT & RIGHTS FOR REPRINT FICTION: Flash Fiction Online pays 2c/word for non-exclusive electronic rights for previously published stories which are no longer bound by contractual obligations to a publisher. The author retains all other rights. We do not consider stories that were originally self-published, including on a blog or Patreon. Payment is made via PayPal (preferred) or mailed as a check.

We use Submittable to accept and review our submissions.
