Group-Sponsored Pidgeonholes Microfiction Contest
|Deadline:||Mar 16, 2015|
In conjunction with the Flash group, Pidgeonholes, a weekly online publication, is holding a contest here on Scribophile to accompany our second quarter of submissions. As a publication, we’re not interested in genre restrictions. We’re interested in the idea of “foreignness”, in geography, in identity, ideas, and language. We want genre-breaking, bold, risk-taking works.
Entries should be microfiction between 100 and 500 words. Related to flash fiction, microfiction is underrepresented in today’s literary scene. It is not however, the same as a vignette. These should be tales the reader can connect with, ideas that hint at a larger picture, with messages that leave the reader thinking long after the story is finished.
The publication, while published online weekly, will have each quarter’s works collected into a volume released through ISSUU, and made available for download. To read our latest works, go to http://pidgeonholes.com/dispatches/
