A New Perspective Anna Yeatts

I am excited to begin this journey as publisher of Flash Fiction Online.  I truly believe stories give us the opportunity to deepen our understanding of the human condition.  Flash Fiction Online will always support authors, artists, and readers from all walks of life. We’re here to learn from one another through well written stories of any genre that engage heart, mind, and soul.  We will never discriminate based on race, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, or religion.

Bats at Dusk” by Jorie Daniels is a poignant literary piece that is more relevant today than ever. “His Brother’s Bite” by Gillian Daniels is a creepily fun fantasy piece just in time for Halloween.  And we’ve included a third story this month, Barbara Barnett’s “Swan Maiden“, a beautifully told fantasy about clinging to hope against all odds.

We’ve also added a Support Us page.  Your donations keep Flash Fiction Online free, but there are other ways to help out as well.  Every little bit counts!

Most of all, spread the word. Tweet, pin, share, like, comment.  We love to hear what you have to say.

Thanks ever so much.  Now go read!

Anna Yeatts

Anna Yeatts is the Publisher of Flash Fiction Online. Since Flash Fiction Online is a free magazine, she spends a great deal of time over at Patreon, trying to drum up enough money to keep a free magazine in business. But she appreciates all the readers and supporters (including the world’s most amazing staff of editors and slush readers) who make FFO a reality every month. 

Anna writes in that nebulous overlap between genre and literary works where offbeat, surreal stories are born. Her short stories appear in Cicada, Daily Science Fiction, Mslexia, Drabblecast, PodCastle, Orson Scott Card’s Intergalactic Medicine Show, and Penumbra among other publications.

When not writing, Anna wrangles two wonderful children, two matching cats, and a German Shepherd who doesn’t believe in weekends. Follow her at or on YouTube.

    Thank you for the kind offer, but Flash Fiction Online is unable to publish jointly with another publication. Best of luck to you with your own publication, keep up the fight to better promote diversity in literature, and thanks for your support. — Anna

      Thank you for the kind offer but I’m afraid we wouldn’t be able to open our pages to another magazine. But I applaud the work of your literary magazine for promoting equality and your interest in Flash Fiction Online! Much love — Anna

    All three stories this week were wonderful: very well written with concise, precise imagery that caused me to audibly gasp at each well-turned phrase.
