Sub Op

If you are a devoted flash fic writer, this is definitely the market listing for you:

SpecLit, a "world of wonder in 100 words" is a weekly e-zine that specializes in delivery flash fiction of 100 words exactly, and define themselves as "suckers for plot. If it ain’t got plot, it ain’t a story. We want each piece to have the feeling of a beginning, a middle, and an end (or inciting incident, attempt(s) to fix it, and climax). All fiction must be original. There are lots of places for fanfic – this isn’t one of them. And finally, of course, it also has to be speculative – fantasy, science fiction, myth fairy tale, dark fantasy, etc… – but no erotica and no gore. A well-placed swear word, the recognition that we are sexual beings, and off-camera violence are all okay, but within limits, eh? Besides, with the focus on plot, there’s no time to get all graphic." Length: 100 words exactly, and according to the submissions guidelines "Titles do not count as part of the 100 words". Payment: 5¢/word. Query on reprints, electronic submissions only, see guidelines for more details.
