Cicada, the literary magazine for readers ages 14 and up, wants flash fiction of 1,000 words or less. They pay up to 10¢/word for new work, and less for previously published stories. From their website:

Relevant to our interests: literature, teens, literature about teens, SFF, feminist fairy tales, aliens, shapeshifters, ghosts, and witches Especially excited to hear from LGBTQIA+ writers, writers with disabilities, and writers of color. Bonus points if your story plays with form: a grocery list, a GoFundMe, a Twitter feed…

Find out more at Cricket Media Submission Manager – CICADA magazine for ages 14+.


I do not knowingly announce submission calls by publishers who do not fulfill their contractual obligations. However, readers are responsible for conducting their own due diligence when submitting work and negotiating contracts.
