Although Steve will continue to manage the day-to-day running of Ellipsis, the board members will be on hand to offer advice and guidance, and to help resolve any editorial issues that may arise. Members will also be called upon to write the occasional publication review or article, lend their expertise and experience of the flash fiction publishing sector, and occasionally read future zines and web submissions.
Board members are free to submit work to the website and future zines, where their work will be read along with all other submissions.
Steve Campbell is Founding Editor of Ellipsis and has no idea how he managed to make it onto a list of writers such as this, but he’s honoured to be here. Between a day job, running this website and compiling the zines, he somehow finds time to write flash fiction. He’s having a race with Stephanie Carty to see who can finish their novel first. Clue: It won’t be Steve. You can find links to his work at standondog.com and follow him on twitter here: @standondog.

Richard de Nooy
Richard de Nooy (1965) grew up in Johannesburg, but has lived in Amsterdam for the past 30 years. He postponed his writing career by studying journalism and psychology, before procrastinating as a crockery salesman, bouncer, cartoonist, translator and editor. He writes novels, shorts stories and poetry in English and Dutch. You can read more via his website: richarddenooy.com, facebook: facebook.com/richarddenooy and twitter: @RicharddeNooy.

Her stories can be found in various places online and in print. She is mentored by Tania Hershman through the Womentoring Project.

Amelia hates submitting bios. Probably why she writes using another name. She writes flash fiction and poetry, creates odd portraits and analyzes movies. Her work has been published in various online literary journals and magazines. The only reason she’s on this editorial board is because Steve bribed her with cheese and publication in the next fifty print issues of Ellipsis Zine. If she gets an opportunity to read your work, she will treat it kindly. Follow Amelia on Twitter here: @Ames236.
