Reading recommendations for quite short fiction

In view of the long-awaited release of Decameron, our journal of "quite short" fiction, we would be remiss if we didn't acknowledge that the world of micro-fiction is large and diverse (as well as, yes, small to the point of being micro-). We recommend the following peer publications and projects to our readers interested in the history and state-of-the-art of the short-short form:
  • NANO FICTION is a non-profit journal founded that seeks to cultivate the genre of flash fiction by creating opportunities for emerging writers to achieve national recognition through our website, print publication, and educational events.
  • 55 Word Stories is an online story series run by Rosemary Mosco, creator of Bird and Moon.
  • For more than a decade, Brevity has published well-known and emerging writers working in the extremely brief (750 words or less) essay form, along with craft essays and book reviews.
  • Booktrust has been promoting books, reading and writing for more than 90 years. On the Short Stories section of their website, readers can find an archive of free short stories from acclaimed and award-winning authors; a list of magazines and websites that accept short story submissions; a listing of short story competitions; and recent reviews of short story collections and anthologies.
