Flash405-HomeFlash 405 is Exposition Review‘s multi-genre short form writing competition awarding cash prizes and publication.

Flash 405 is currently OPEN. Check out the guidelines for “Magic & Myths,” hosted by Expo co-Editor in Chief Jessica June Rowe. You can read the winners of our past contests (including our most recent contest, “Happily Ever After,”) here.



Vol. III of Exposition Review is now available online!

“Orbit” is an exploration of possibility. It’s all the inner fear and outer friction we face when we embark on a new adventure or circle back to confront old demons. It’s also all the hope we carry with us each time we reach outside ourselves, seeking spaces to grow, to belong, to be free. Here you’ll find work that is visual and visceral—as familiar as it is alien. Fall into “Orbit,” and the forces of nature found within.

Vol. III: “Orbit” features work by  Xochitli,-Julisa Bermejo, Edwin Bodney, Val Britton, Melaine Cook, Jason S. Dennis, Brian Howlett, Angela Santillo, WriteGirls Cira Davis and Drew Shinozaki, and so much more.

We celebrated the debut of “Orbit” with an #ExpoPresents Launch Party & Reading at Skylight Books on April 30, 2018!

You can read the full issue online here.
