Are you frustrated when you submit a story only to get a rejection without explanation?
As a publisher, we understand why this happens: The publisher does not have enough time or resources to provide feedback to hundreds or thousands of writers.
We understand your frustration, because we are writers just like you. We understand how valuable feedback is and how it can improve your writing.
We know what it’s like to get a rejection with no explanation.
We have felt the blow to our confidence.
We have had those “I suck at writing” days.
We are also editors, so we understand what happens after you submit your story.

It worked for these writers, and it will work for you.
"My Priority Submission experience at Flash Fiction Magazine was fabulous. I have been exuberant with the whole experience, and I take every opportunity to promote your service to other writers who need that extra guidance in fine tuning their writing skills. The cost is extremely reasonable, and for that price, I got a lot more back than what I had anticipated."
"I write this still unaware of the final disposition of my submission but certain that, accepted or not, my experience through the Priority Submission process has made my writing better. C.T. has been insightful, kind, and helpful along the way. Her gentle suggestions helped turn a character study into a story. It’s been a truly revelatory experience! It’s remarkable that a couple of thoughtful editorial questions can alter what one expects of one’s work going forward. I’m grateful for the experience."
"I found the Priority Submission experience very much worth the cost. I have used it previously and found (both this time and the previous time) that the editors assigned to my story were not only genuinely helpful, but also very kind. I even got a suggestion for a title, which was unexpected and one of those things that you might only see as handy in retrospect. You guys do very good work, send out positive vibes, which makes for a very chill, yet insightful experience. I would recommend the editing service to anyone who wants tips on a new style they want to try out (which was the case for me this time), anyone who feels stuck with a story, or anyone who writes, really."
"I received thoughtful, thus helpful feedback—not boilerplate 'junk.' I used it to re-work my pieces; more importantly, I used the feedback to think about my work and apply the feedback to works since. I will use the service again in the future."
"I have been very impressed with the Priority Submission process. Within a day I received very detailed and helpful editing recommendations that have definitely improved my submission. I’m still working on responding to the full list of possible improvements."
"I was very pleased with the feedback. So pleased in fact, I hired Mark to edit a number of my flash pieces. The process was quick, painless, and very helpful."
Getting feedback on a story before submitting to publishers is a critical piece of the process that many writers ignore.
We know this because we get countless submissions that clearly have not been read by anyone other than the author.
Other than improving your writing skills, the single best way to improve your odds of getting published is to get feedback on your story before you submit it.
But who do you turn to for feedback? Even if your friends are honest, you can’t keep asking them.
That is why we created the...
If you have ever been in a public Facebook group, you know that most members of the group are not active or just post when it benefits them. That is what happens when anyone can join the group.
The Flash Fiction Masters Facebook Group is only available to students of our course and monthly subscribers, which means the commitment level is far greater than a group that anyone can join.
You will be a part of a community of writers that are on the same page and are willing to help.
Writing is a lonely endeavor. It’s nice to know that you have a community you can turn to for support.
"The Flash Fiction Masters Facebook group is amazing!! It might sound cheesy, but for the first time in my life I feel like I'm exactly where I was always meant to be, and I finally got a fighting chance in life. As you can see, this kinda means a lot to me. And what's even better is that your magazine, 101 Words, is the first to have published my work and give me the opportunity to believe in myself when everything was stacked against me. So I kinda will remain a faithful follower and participant of 101 Words and Flash Fiction Magazine until the day I die."
"It's the best decision I've made...a safe supportive place for writers, new or not so new. And the best use of Facebook I've experienced. I was ready to drop Facebook just before I joined this group."
