Markets listed on this page contain markets that publish works of flash fiction (normally 75 to 1000 words, but some publications may differ), micro fiction (normally up to 30 words), poetry (any length), Twitter (works of 140 characters, about 23 words or less), or via audio podcasts that do not include a significant number of stories written by the publisher(s), editor(s), or staff. These markets must not also publish fiction stories (1000 or more words). On other pages you may find markets that accept flash fiction, poetry, micro fiction, Twitter, or audio works, but also accept longer and/or fiction works on their respective pages (Pro, Semipro, Pay, etc.). This page is for those markets that do not accept anything except one or more of the types named above.
