Splickety Publishing Group – Splickety fills gaps in the modern reader’s day with splicketyconcise, poignant fiction under 1,000 words. We want stories that hit fast and strike hard––stories that, no matter the genre, can cut through the day’s troubles and grip readers with short attention spans. The most basic way to improve your chances of getting published with us is to adhere to the following submission guidelines:

LENGTH:

Your well-edited story should be between 300 and 1,000 words long and it should fit one of our scheduled Upcoming Themes.

Each magazine will feature one Nano-fiction story of 100 words or less in our Nano Corner. If you can write a complete story in 100 or fewer words that fits with one of our magazine’s themes, send it to us.

HINT: Due to design and layout restrictions, we can only publish a few stories longer than 700 words per issue. If you want to increase your chances of getting published with us, send us stories that are 700 words or less!

In other words, we acquire for each issue approximately 12 stories, with the breakdown as follows:

701 – 1,000 word stories — 2-3 stories acquired

500 – 700 word stories — 8-10 stories acquired

< 100 words — 1 story acquired

FLASH FICTION RESOURCE & SAMPLE ISSUE: The Rose Metal Press Field Guide to Writing Flash Fiction is the best place to learn the fundamentals and intricacies of flash fiction if you’re new to the genre. Also, we encourage you to download (for free) and read our fourth issue of Splickety Magazine so you can get a feel for how a well-written flash fiction story should flow.

WE DO NOT PUBLISH:

  • Previously published flash fiction
  • Scenes/excerpts/synopses from novels
  • Excessive violence, profanity, or erotica in any form. Splickety publishes from an open-minded worldview, but we do have our limits.
  • Conversely, we don’t want thinly-veiled stories that preach from a soapbox of any sort, whether it be political, religious, or otherwise.

How to Submit to Us

Familiarize yourself with our imprints (each magazine imprint publishes different genres).

Review our upcoming themes and be sure you have a story that fits one of them. Otherwise, your submission may get lost in our slush pile.

Review our requirements for manuscript and email formatting.

We only accept submissions via email, unless other arrangements have been made. Send your story as an email attachment (NOT in the body of the email) to Josh Smith at submissions@splickety.com. IMPORTANT: Add @splickety.com to your allowed senders list, or our reply may go to your junk/spam email folder.

For multiple submissions, please send separate emails.
