For consideration, please send all submissions to
We are currently seeking flash fiction below 1000 words. We're not too bothered about genre here, anything goes. All we care about is the quality. Move us, woo us, bring us to tears, make us sort of confused. We are especially interested in work that is sometimes harder to find a home, such as, weird fiction, experimental, the gothic, cross-genre, spooky but not quite horror, lgbtqia+ themes. So go ahead, surprise us!
We currently accept submissions on a rolling basis.
Please send work as a .doc or .docx file.
Use a sensible font (e.g. Arial, Times New Roman, Courier) in 12 pt
1000 words max
Simultaneous submissions are allowed. If your work is accepted elsewhere and you need to withdraw your submission, please send us an email (ideally on the same email thread as it helps the sleepy fat cat team keep track of stories!)
Feel free to include a short bio alongside your submission
We look forward to reading your work!
