Vestal Review publishes its print issues twice a year in a perfect-bound edition. 

We don't read new submissions in December, January, June and July. 

Vestal Review is a magazine for flash (short-shorts) fiction, 500 words or fewer.  Since our content is free and we pay our authors, we are forced to resort to submission charges after 16 years of fee-free publication.  Subsequently, we increased our honorarium to $25 flat.
Color art for the print and Web issues covers. Please submit portrait orientation only with the ratio of 1.5 or 1.6. Payment is one copy of the print issue.

Interior illustrations in B&W. No pay, just fame.
