Where to Publish Novellas-/Novels-in-Flash

Here is a list of publishers who have published novellas-in-flash/novels-in-flash since the turn of the 21st century. In all cases, do check latest submission guidelines and be sure to confirm that the publisher is open to relevant submissions. I hope to keep building this list. Several publishers have since closed or merged with other publishers and are therefore not listed here.

Small Press Publishers who have published more than one novella-in-flash/novel-in-flash in the last five years: 

AdHoc Fiction
Ellipsis Zine

Flash: the International Short-Short Story Press (second novella-in-flash publication forthcoming in 2021)
Gumbo Press
Liquorice Fish Books/Cinnamon Press (NB several prose poetry sequences that read like novellas – e.g. Ed’s Wife and Other Creatures & The True Story of Cowboy Hat and the Ingenue)
Rose Metal Press
Truth Serum Press
V. Press

Independent Publishers who have recently published at least one book that could be described as a novella-in-flash/novel-in-flash:
