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 Patreon.com or on YouTube.
Cislyn Smith likes playing pretend, playing games, and playing with words. Though she was born on the gulf coast of Florida, she calls Madison, Wisconsin her home now. She shares her home with three very photogenic cats, a variety of cool bacteria, and some nifty humans. She has been known to crochet tentacles, write stories at odd hours, and study stone dead languages. Cislyn is occasionally dismayed by the lack of secret passages in her house. Her poems and stories have appeared in Strange Horizons, Diabolical Plots, Mermaids Monthly, and other places else-internet. She is a graduate of the Viable Paradise workshop, and a first reader for several genre magazines. When not writing, she spends time behind the scenes at the Dream Foundry, helping emerging creators across the speculative arts to connect with helpful resources and level up their craft. She is co-convention chair for Flights of Foundry, a virtual convention held annually in the spring.
