Flash fiction submissions wanted

FF>> Press is currently seeking flash fiction submissions for our second volume, due out in the summer of 2009. Our first collection included pieces from Bobbie Louise Hawkins, Lihn Dinh, Barbara Henning, Andrew Wille, and many emerging new voices. We are looking for unpublished flash fiction that runs less than 1,000 words, with a special place in our hearts for the 400-700
word range. Stories should discover something brief and intimate in a very short space. Is it entertaining/thoughtful/edgy/ poignant? Does it deliver in under 1000 words? Then we want it.

Submission Guidelines:
Send up to three of your error-free, previously unpublished flash pieces, under 1000 words, double-spaced in 12-pt Times New Roman or Courier, as a Word or RTF.doc, to
editorff@gmail.com. Please include your name,address, telephone number, email address and word count on the first page of your submission. Submissions will be accepted until December 31, 2008 at midnight. We will contact everyone who has submitted by February 15th, 2009. If we publish your story, you will receive two complimentary copies of the book. Simultaneous submissions are welcome, but please notify us immediately if your piece has been accepted
elsewhere. We usually assume First North American Rights to work published in our annual, after which all rights revert to the author.

Our first volume, *fast forward*,* *can be found at bookstores around the country including Tattered Cover, Powell Books, and City Lights, and is also available for purchase from amazon.com. Learn more at our website www.fastforwardpress.org.
