About the Magazine

Founded in 2014 | United Kingdom

New Flash Fiction Review was founded in 2014 by Meg Pokrass. An online magazine originally devoted to flash fiction, we have also published interviews with notable writers, prose poetry, and creative nonfiction. We’re proud to have NFFR stories selected for awards anthologies such as the Wigleaf Top 50 and the Best Small Fictions anthology. It’s a joy each year to make nominations and see the authors we champion celebrated. Visit our recognition page for more details.


We currently list only main editors, more will be added later! If you are an editor, you can edit your masthead in our admin panel :)
