Flash Fiction Definition – What’s the best definition for the flash fiction genre? The flash fiction genre is made up of stories anywhere from one hundred to one thousand words in length (opinion varies, but all fit within that range). They are brief, concise, and extremely focused stories; the stories often tell only the necessities, because of word count limits, and often hint at a much larger story. They can be written for any fiction genre and are often published in collections.
