Micro Chapbooks FORTHCOMING in 2019

We are delighted to say yes to three manuscripts this year, and we look forward to sharing them with you in 2019.

FLASH Creative nonfiction, poetry, & ephemera

Lucid: a Micro-Memoir by Kia Alice Groom


Venus in Bloom by Wanda Deglane


Eppur Si Muove by Stacey Balkun

We were pleasantly surprised by the volume of submissions this year—we had so many it took an extra month to read through them. Thank you so much for your patience in our replies, for all of the fine manuscripts sent for us to read, and to our readers this year for stepping in to help narrow down the possibilities.

Each year we make new connections, discover new-to-us poets and fiction writers and essayists, and are astounded by the bravery, vulnerability, experimentation, and openness offered in the queue.

In the next few months, we’ll be posting more information to listings for each of these micros, adding listing pages, and choosing samples to share with you.
