A micro poem for micro pirates. Bottle Pirates is up at Three Drops from a Cauldron today, along with fellow pieces that play with myths, legends, folklore, fables, and fairy tales. Here’s Issue One. Enjoy!
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. They’re looking for 140 character or less submissions (and take reprints), so if you have something, consider submitting! https://7x20blog.wordpress.com/submissions-guidelines/
140 and Counting is available now on Amazon for Kindle. It’s an anthology of exactly 141 stories and poems compiled from Twitter magazine 7×20. One of mine (actually, my first ever published Twitter story) is included in the “jurassic sushi,” aka science fiction and fantasy, section.
Editor Joanne Merriam on Twitter fiction: “it shoehorns a little literature into people’s days, between celebrity updates and friends’ witticisms, creating a small opportunity for reflection that might otherwise have been lost.” It’s a way to shoehorn a little writing into your life, also, and fun to boot.
Eva fell down the rabbit hole into a special garden. Read what she found @7×20.
