November 28, 2013 is Thanksgiving Day here in the United States. It’s a holiday when Americans celebrate all the good things we have in life. Well, because the Old Soldier is a cynic, it’s easy for him to remind everyone that millions of Americans have little to celebrate on Thanksgiving Day; but the Old Soldier is not unreasonable. The majority of Americans do have plenty to be thankful for.
I personally have a great deal to be thankful for.
And anytime any writer can pursue his or her dream of publication with a reasonable amount of success, that writer has plenty to be thankful for, too.
So, we at the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette wish all Americans a Happy Thanksgiving Day!
Submissions To Remain Open
On 1 December, 2013 submissions for unsolicited manuscripts will reopen and remain open from that date forward.
However, since the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette can absorb only two short stories (or a short story and a couple of poems) every month, only the best submissions will be published. And even then I still won’t be able to publish all the publishable submissions. In other words, first a writer has to be good. Then that writer has to be lucky, too.
A few writers who are good but whose work is not accepted for publication will be encouraged to try again.
Everyone else will be wished good luck in submitting their work somewhere else.
This is the reality of publishing an online magazine. But if you are one of the few who are accepted for publication, you become staff. Your work will appear constantly in the Pittsburgh Flash Fiction Gazette, the most exciting flash fiction magazine on the Internet.
Keep reading and keep writing that flash fiction. Take a moment to follow this site or to sign up for a free email subscription today. This is the Old Soldier reporting from a cold, snowy Pittsburgh.
Happy Thanksgiving Day!
