Matchbook has a very unique project where they publish stories as Google Ads. Mine is about Velella, or By-the-Wind Sailors. They’ve always fascinated me, not least because they look like blue upside-down hearts. Read Velella, Velella and the entire Volume 4 of Ad Stories.
I have a new micro prose piece up at New South Journal today. Another retelling of the always retellable Alice in Wonderland. Before she went to space, Alice Ate Mushrooms. She collected asteroids from the belt, saved stars, spilled milk, spun dust, fished for stars, and jumped into tea.
A happy belated New Year’s. It’s the Year of the Monkey! Here is an amazing video of some very zen snow monkeys.
Some new Twitter fiction this week, mixing up Alice in five different wonderlands. Her adventures involve the Queen’s tarts, a dropped ball, borrowed shoes, her magic looking glass, and a house with edible eaves.
These stories were published in 7×20, a long-running Twitter fiction and poetry magazine that is currently edited by Julia Patt.
Read it @onefortyfiction. A special koala and lovely Mother’s Day to all.
Read @7×20. This was originally a winner in Phoebe Journal’s First Ever Twitter Contest.
Read it @nanoism. This story was inspired by my love affair with French press coffee last year.
Read it @nanoism. Like optimist friends who stay optimist, even after missing the ark.
