Abstract: The subject of the study is flash fiction in modern literature; the goal of the study is to identify and characterize the genre range and style features of flash fiction in the modern regional literature for children. To accomplish the research, the principles and tools of the genre-style approach to the analysis of the literary work are used. It was found that the short forms of epics, being in demand in modern prose for children and adolescents, are present in a fairly broad genre range: a short story, stories in stories (tales, anecdotes), a short entertaining and instructive tale, a lyrical miniature, etc. In the work of each writer, the tendency towards minimalization, common to contemporary literature, acquires an individual style specificity, representing the connection with the categorial foundations of the author's artistic world. Inclination to flash fiction is embodied in different types of writing and different types of artistry, reflected not only in fiction, but also in popular scientific literature — in this case genre scenarios of the travel essay and natural miniatures are involved. The results of the research can be useful to specialists in children's literature, teachers of literature and students of philological specialties. Analysis of the corpus of texts of flash fiction in modern children's literature in terms of discovering the specifics of the genre and the characteristics of style features allowed us to put and partially solve some pressing questions of the semantics and poetics of works for children and about children.
