UW Flash Fiction is an online publication dedicated to publishing flash fiction and poetry by UW-Madison undergraduate students. We define “flash fiction” as being 1,000 words or less. The same guideline applies to poetry. Updates and upcoming events can found on Facebook and Twitter.

General submissions are accepted on a rolling basis. For more details, check out the Submit page.

We are always looking for new staff members to join our crew! Meetings for the 2016 Fall semester are on Wednesdays from 7PM to 8PM at the Siftskeller in Memorial Union. No previous experience is necessary to join. All you need is an interest in poetry, fiction, and creativity!

WUD Publications Committee (PubCom) is one of the largest committees in the Wisconsin Directorate. Our aim is to promote creativity and literacy on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus and in the greater Madison community. In addition to publishing thought-provoking, professional quality journals, we also sponsor events in the arts, music, and humanities. PubCom hosts several print journals, as well as writing interest groups and online publications like UW Flash Fiction, such as Illumination: The Undergraduate Journal of Humanities, Emmie Music Magazine, Souvenirs: A Collection of International Experiences, Moda Magazine, and The Dish. If you are interested in becoming part of PubCom, please contact Rachel at wudpublicationscommittee@gmail.com. Everyone is welcome! No experience is necessary.
