Ralan Publishes Flash Index For Laughing Babies #FridayRecommends

Friday RecommendsWhenever I’m looking for a market for a story or poem or whatever, the first place I turn is to Ralan.com. Best. Market site. Ever. For instance, here’s his list of markets for flash fiction (stories of 2000 words or FEWER).

Another really really great place to look for markets — or, really, anything — is Erica Verrillo’s Publishing … And Other Forms of Insanity. Here’s her list of 13 paying flash fiction markets.

And OF COURSE Absolute Write. And here’s their index of flash fiction markets. Like the other sources listed here, they give markets for other kinds of writing. I’ve just linked to the flash, because Alicia Butcher Ehrhardt, a writer who is fabulous at any length, was asking me about flash markets.

And now, because it’s something everybody needs to see now and then, this:

You’re welcome.

A WRITING PROMPT BASED ON MY POST: Someone sees a glimpse of a laughing baby — a real one, a photo, a memory, or whatever.



I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    Laughing babies and kittens and… are God’s reminder to enjoy life, lose the stress that’s unnecessary, and that He’s in charge. Thanks for the kind words – and baby Micah.

      Laughing babies, kittens, and paying markets. These are a few of my favorite things.
