Submissions

Short Story Writing Workshop

Short Story Writing Workshop (Photo credit: MadLabUK)

(Editor’s Note: Unfortunately, in order to stay in the black for 2017, unsolicited submissions will no longer be read until further notice.)

The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette is calling for erotic short story submissions.  Submissions should be between 500 to 900 words long.  Type the story in an email.  Attachments will not be opened.  Put “Submission” in the subject line or the email may be rejected as spam.  In the body of the email include the title, name of the author, word count and your email address; then begin the story.  At the end of the story add a one-to-five sentence bio in the third person and the URL to your homepage if you have one and want a link back to it.

Submission does not mean acceptance.  I can publish only a fraction of the submissions that I receive.  So, you not only have to be good.  You also have to be lucky.  Be sure to format the story correctly for the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette; which means it should be formatted just like this post: alignment to the left, no indentations.

The Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette does not publish science fiction or fantasy.

Rigorous proofreading counts.  Not following submission guidelines is enough reason for rejection.  Authors retain all rights.  The new fee is $ 25.00 for a short story and exposure in the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette which publishes some of the best erotic flash fiction on the Internet.  The story must be yours.  Previously published work is welcomed.  You must have a PayPal account to accept payment.  Please, no simultaneous submissions.

Send submissions to hoganpitt@aol.com

      Christopher, the contest is on going. So far I haven’t found a story that deserves the honorarium.
