Dear reader!

Welcome to the second anniversary edition of Vestal Review, a flash fiction magazine. When asked what is flash, a common question for writers and readers alike, we believe that the stories we publish here define the genre. Cut the unnecessary, reveal the statue in the slab of marble, get rid of the mundane and keep the intense—that's the picture that is worth the five hundred words.

We enter the third year of our existence not as "just an e-zine" anymore, but as a limited edition print magazine available for ordering through a link on the front page. Our Web edition is still free to the reader, we still pay our writers professional wages, and we are able to attract stories of ever increasing quality for your reading pleasure. Enjoy!
