Vestal Review is a magazine for flash (short-shorts) fiction. We realize that there are different definitions of what a flash story is and all of them have merit. In our definition, a flash story is no longer than 500 words and it has a plot. Most genres, other than children's, syrupy romance or hard science fiction, are accepted, and we love humor.
