Glittership is open to flash fiction and short stories. Do you think there are differences to what makes each length of story successful? Yes, but I find it difficult to articulate these differences in a way that doesn’t immediately sound fake to me. I think that flash fiction is most successful when it focuses very […]
We’d like to take a break from our regularly scheduled content to give a shout-out to a new audio magazine that’s currently seeking funding through Kickstarter. In the words of editor Keffy R.M. Kehrli, Glittership is: a short science fiction and fantasy podcast that will feature stories about LGBTQ characters or explore LGBTQ issues. I […]
When it comes to writing, behaving badly is a giant no-no. If you know me, you know that burning things is one of my fortes, mostly effigies of my mortal enemies who just so happen to be Pro-Wrestlers. All of them. Burning bridges, though, is a big no-no.

Hello there! My name is Stefan Milićević, and I am a slush reader. This is the part where you all stand-up and say, “Hello, Stefan“ in a reassuring voice. Do it. Seriously. Do it now. I am a gentle soul. Anyway, a few days ago I joined the Flash Fiction Online team, and I slushed […]
I need your help. No, I haven’t fallen down a well. Or been possessed by a disembodied phantom (though that would make for a fabulous story). But I need you. Yes, you. Right there. Not someone else. Not the person you could share this post with. Or their Aunt Mabel. You. Because you’re my reader. […]
