The Molotov Cocktail is an online zine based in Portland that publishes “volatile flash fiction.” I love the mix of literary, genre, pulp, surrealist, experimental stories they publish every month. In 2017, I started submitting stories to some of their quarterly flash contests. In 2020, a couple of my stories were “close-but-no-cigar” shortlisted.
And now? My flash fiction story “Goodbye to Rock” placed 7th in the “Elemental Flash” contest! The issue was published online today and our stories will be published in a print anthology in the future! I’m grateful to be included; these flash contest issues are always a highlight.
