Vestal Review encourages diversity in writing and publishing. A wide range of voices is good for the reader and literature in general, enhancing our understanding of the world. It’s fair, beneficial, and long overdue. We encourage underrepresented writers to send us their stories.

For us, a flash story is no longer than 500 words, and it moves from point A to point B. If it’s longer than 500 words or is too static, it’s not for us. We also reject pornography, racism, and excessive gore. On the other end of the spectrum, no preachy stories, please. Our target audience is over 18, so R-rated content is okay, but not X-rated. We accept most genres, and we love humor. We also appreciate diversity, whether racial, socioeconomic, or gender-based.

Format your story in Microsoft Word, including a heading with a word-count. Please include a brief author bio in the message space. 200 words maximum. We try to get back to submitters within one month.

Send us two brief paragraphs, one outlining your proposal and the other with your bio, including publications. The review itself should weigh in at no more than 500 words.
