LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

img_9606Hello. My name is Dawn Lowe, and I started Brilliant Flash Fiction five years ago with my niece, Laurie Scavo. Brilliant Flash Fiction is an international online literary journal.

Back in 2014, Laurie and I had just survived a series of personal tragedies and wanted to build something good together.

We knew the internet was overpopulated with journals demanding money from writers—in the form of contest entry fees or “reading fees”—and many of these journals would simply disappear after collecting large sums of money.

At Brilliant Flash Fiction, we never charge any fees. We treat writers with dignity, and we’ve created a quality product at brilliantflashfiction.com, illustrated with Laurie’s dazzling photography. We’ve published hundreds of stories and conducted writing contests that have generated over 3,000 international entries. (more…)
