Congratulations, Tara and Thomas,

A great review by a great magazine.
Effective immediately, Anita, Cameron, Gillian and Tino are promoted to the associate editors in appreciation of their contribution to Vestal Review.

#flashfiction is not a stepping stone to “real” fiction just like youth is not a stepping stone to the old age.
Question: Why was my story rejected?
A short answer: your story wasn’t rejected because it was bad, but because other stories were better.
A longer answer: your story wasn’t rejected because it was bad, but because other stories were better for this publication in this editor’s mind at this time.

Some people are so happy that they can skilfully bang on the keys of their keyboards all by themselves, so they rush to show their skills to the editor.
Sorry it takes so long for us to respond. As a paying magazine that don’t charge any fees (until now), we receive too many submissions. Please accept our apologies.
