Call :: 50 Give or Take Open to Submissions & Subscriptions

Screenshot of Vine Leaves Press daily micro fiction newsletter 50 Give or Take

Deadline: Rolling
If a reader signs up to 50 Give or Take, they will receive micro fiction of fifty words or less delivered daily straight into their inbox. Despite popular opinion, the name 50 Give or Take doesn’t refer to the number of words in the story. It is a metaphor for what we, as readers and writers, give and take emotionally from the written word. Do you write flash fiction? Then submit! We publish all accepted stories in a print collection every November 6. All you have to do is submit your story, one-line bio, and vertical photo of yourself. Info here:
