The Long and the Short of It


While books are getting longer (Donna Tartt's Goldfinch), our attention spans have become shorter than that of a goldfish. What’s a reader to do? Try flash-fiction! There’s no consensus on length, but pieces range from 6 to 2000 words. Here are a few websites to get you started reading: 3am Magazine, Flashfiction Magazine, Everyday Fiction Shortbread Stories, Huffington PostNANO Fiction. Some will send stories to your inbox daily and several accept reader submissions.
