The Remarkable Reinvention of Very Short Fiction

I post the URL to Robert Shapard’s essay on micro fictions as a way of announcing that, besides poems and visual art, I will now be accepting only flash or short-short fiction (rather than longer short fiction). My initial intention was to focus on poetry and art in Local Nomad; however, I’m also interested in fiction forms that verge on or merge with the poetic. One way to do this is to encourage shorter forms of experimental fiction. See Robert Shapard’s “The Remarkable Reinvention of Very Short Fiction” in World Literature Today.
