Changing of the Guard

Jake here.

I founded Flash Fiction Online in December of 2007. Flash fiction itself was just gaining steam, and it looked like there was an opportunity for a professional market dedicated to flash. I’m happy that we — me, yes, but alongside a team of volunteers who rallied around the concept — created that market and kept it going for five-plus years.

About two years ago — has it been two years yet? It’s pretty much impossible for me to tell — I passed editorial leadership to Suzanne Vincent, a talented author and judge of stories. She will continue in the Editor-in-Chief role. I’m now also handing off the publisher / CFO role to Anna Yeats. If I already owe you money (believe me, I know it’s possible), contact me; for anything else, contact Suzanne or Anna. 🙂 From this point forward, anything I do with FFO will have the title “emeritus” attached to it. And for all that I love flash fiction, that’s a relief.

I’d like to thank the volunteers on the Flash Fiction Online staff, past and present, who have done so much to keep the magazine moving forward. I literally can’t thank them enough. They do the work for the love of literature, and to make wonderful things happen. I trust that they, Anna, and Suzanne will continue to bring you flashes of beauty and insight.

July Issue Coming Soon

Last month didn’t work out well for your humble publisher because he was embroiled in silly things. He did intend to get an issue live by the middle of July, however. That’s still coming, in just a few days. Not to worry — flash marches on.
