Group-Sponsored Microfiction Mondays Contest
|Deadline:||May 31, 2017|
Microfiction Mondays was inactive for a while, but has been revived. The group celebrates short fiction of no more than 500 words.
A good piece of microfiction requires careful word choice. It conveys a large amount of information with relatively few words. Like all fiction, story is essential. A good story lingers with you long after you have finished reading, and a good piece of microfiction stays with you much longer than it took the reader to devour the prose.
Entries will be a complete story of no more than 500 words. There is no minimum word count; a story of a single sentence, written well, can be as emotionally engaging as a full novel. Entries can be written in any genre, and feature any theme. Judging will focus on the originality and execution of the ideas, the polish of the prose and the resonance of the story.
