little somethings press is currently closed for submissions.

In each issue, little somethings press publishes 30 pieces of flash fiction, flash memoir, and poetry, as well as up to 10 pieces of visual art. Simultaneous submissions are accepted, but please let lsp know if your work has been accepted elsewhere.

This is a small independent press that makes everything by hand (with love), so responses may take up to six months.

issue five

This project is partially funded by a City of Tempe – Community Arts Grant. Space will be held in issue five for Tempe-based, Tempe-connected, or Arizona-based artists; however, all are encouraged to apply! Below is the call.

How do you or your loved ones hold onto memories? Which objects transport you to another place or time? We are seeking work based on “ephemera.” These are collectible short-term use items, like playbills, stamps, event posters, ticket stubs, political leaflets, bumper stickers, and more. Submit your related flash fiction and memoir (up to 300 words) and poetry (up to 12 lines) in a single .doc or .docx file. Submit your visual art in a .jpg format. Send all submissions to by August 1st.

Contributors will receive a small honorarium and a contributor copy as payment for their submissions. We work with First North American Serial Rights. However, all rights revert back to the author upon publication.
