"Love & Want & Derision in 140 Characters"

Forms of literature continue to evolve (or is it "evolve"?)…here’s a call for submissions of 140 characters:

One Forty Fiction is a website dedicated to stories that stick to a limit of 140 characters (spaces included). Stories told with beginnings, middles, and ends, and characters who want things.

But how to tell such stories in such limited space? How to create love, and want, and derision in 140 characters? How to deliver your heart?

We have no answer for you. We just know that you have 140 characters to make us see, feel, live, & yearn for the world beyond your 140.

Give us all you got. But give it to us wrapped tight, a Big Bang of a universe, a history of life itself, communicated wisely, and with love.

And if you’re feeling saucy, don’t be afraid to bring the jazz & funk.

Submit as many and as often as you like:
