We welcome readers and writers to enjoy and contribute to our collection of 100-word stories. Every Friday the Fictioneers gather here from all over the globe to share stories, offer criticism and encourage each other.
Many of us are published and have titles to offer – some of us are just starting out and are learning the ropes of both writing AND blogging. If you find yourself intrigued by one of our 100-word short shorts, then browse around that author’s blog and see if they can sate a bigger appetite for you too!
If you’re an author, you’re encouraged to leave a slug line to your latest title for sale after your 100-word entry. Also, a 25-word pitch would be perfect for this. Please limit it to that so this event doesn’t become a ‘Buy My Book’ push instead of the generous community it has become.
We gather every Friday here to post a very short story. It’s a great way to showcase your voice, but to do it in 100 word is almost an extreme challenge. It forces you to choose strong verbs and concise phrases.
Hop on board and post one of yours or visit ours, or do both.
