We’re very excited about our new team of flash fiction editors, Kristin Bonilla, Ingrid Jendrzejewski, Becca Borawski Jenkins, and Jolene McIlwain. Not only do they boast an impressive resume of flash publications at some of the most prestigious journals, they’re also super nice! Oh and they’re looking forward to reading your work. You can send it to them here.
