Call for submissions:

Welcome to Circle City Publishing.

Commercial-Free: A Binge-Worthy Flash Fiction Anthology is now open for submissions. Circle City Publishing is seeking flash fiction short stories from any genre and subject matter (except for romance and erotica) no longer than 1,500 words.

The price of the anthology will be set to cover the minimum printing costs to facilitate a low price point and encourage new readers to explore the content. Due to this, there will be no profit from sales, so this will be an unpaid project. Selected submissions will receive a free copy of the ebook. Contributors are welcome and encouraged to promote the collection at any signing events, and utilize the ebook for giveaways. The more readers, the better for all involved.

Submissions close on 12/1/2022. Three submission maximum per author. Reprints or simultaneous submissions will be considered, as long as there are no contractual obligations from other publishers. Authors will retain all rights to their submitted works.

Send your double spaced, indented MS Word or Google Docs document to Please include your name as you’d like it to be published, the title of the story, and the word count. The subject line of the email should also include “Commercial-Free Anthology submission.”

Along with that, also include an author bio with social media handles, web site address, and/or email address where readers can reach you.


General submissions:

*Due to ongoing time constraints, Circle City Publishing is limited in the projects they are able to accept. For inquiries about our availability, please send a brief synopsis of your project. No offense to the genres, but romance and/or erotica will not be considered.*
