Please read the entire guidelines before submitting. No, really. Please do.
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.
We are responding much quicker now. If you don't get a reply in a couple of weeks or so, it means that your story gets multiple reads and has a better than average chance of acceptance.
