From The Art and Popular Culture Encyclopedia
Flash fiction is a style of fictional literature or fiction of extreme brevity. There is no widely accepted definition of the length of the category. Some self-described markets for flash fiction impose caps as low as 300, while others consider stories as long as 1000 words to be flash fiction.
The Micro Award was established in 2007 by author Robert Laughlin to recognize outstanding flash fiction of both print and electronic media.
