We want your ultra condensed travel writing, mini flashes of narrative that can stand alone in three sentences or less. We call these micro-notes.
In the tradition of Get Your Pen Moving we are introducing Micro-Notes, travel stories of extreme brevity. Much like flash fiction, micro-notes tell a complete story in just a few sentences.
Please have your Notes in by Tuesday, October 13th. Submission details below.
Take a powerful and extreme example from the six-word story by Ernest Hemingway:
“For sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
What We Want
How you convey your story in three sentences is up to you. Keep in mind that we like ‘place.’ The setting of the story should be so concrete and defined as to almost feel like a character.
Please submit your micro notes to david [at] matadornetwork.com with “submission: micro-notes” in the subject line. Selected submissions will be published in a compilation here at Matador after the 13th.
