Flash Fiction: for writers, readers, editors, publishers, & fans


The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts Wants Your Flash Fiction Triptychs

Matter Press and its Journal of Compressed Creative Arts are currently looking for submissions in their brand new category: triptychs. First, it might make sense to check out the example triptychs:



The Journal of Compressed Creative Arts is looking for something similar: a three-columned submission, with the piece itself in the center column. The journal prefers the surrounding columns to be used in a way similar to the examples, kind of like those pop-ups in music videos. However, you can use the columns for anything you would like, but the journal would like there to be a singular creative piece and for that to be placed in the center column. That creative piece should be a one paragraph creative nonfiction or fiction piece (neither longer than 300 words) or a single stanza poem (not to exceed 10 lines or 75 words).

Please format the submission as a 3-column Microsoft Word document. It will be translated into a PDF and then into a JPG--and it will appear as a smaller image that can be clicked on to get the full sized triptych. As with the journal's other submissions, Matter Press will pay $50 for an accepted triptych. Submissions are open for triptychs now until December 15, 2013.
