Closed to submissions for 2021!

Whew! That went by quickly! Paper Butterfly Flash Fiction is now closed to submissions for the year. Thank you to all of the authors for this opportunity to read their work – I am looking forward to seeing what everyone has sent along!

If you haven’t yet received a reply from me stating that I have received your story, you will be getting that at some point today, so please keep an eye on your inbox.

Watch for another email from me on or around December 31, when I will be notifying everyone as to the status of their story.

Thank you again!

(Please note the timeline for review – I will try to get through the reading by mid-month but as per the submission guidelines, December 31 is the latest date that you will be notified about the status of your story.)

This year’s call for submissions is over!

I have some reading to do, I tell ya! Paper Butterfly Flash Fiction received well over two hundred stories during the 2020 call for submissions and I will be a very busy lady for the next month. A huge thank you to all the authors who submitted their work! I am excited to see the diversity of work by writers from all over the world.

My aim is to respond to each author regarding their stories by December 15. Please don’t ask about them before then (unless they are being published elsewhere and you need to withdraw them from my consideration).

In the meantime, I encourage everyone to browse the fantastic stories already up on the site. I’ll be publishing a new story from Avra Margariti on December 1, so bookmark or follow Paper Butterfly here on WordPress or on social media to be one of the first to read it! Thanks again, everyone!
