Twitter Fiction at Wordsfest!

We've all heard of fiction, but have you heard of Twitter fiction? Twitter fiction is a whole story - a beginning, a middle and an end - written in the form of a tweet. This means that each story can only be 140 characters!

Check out The Guardian's Twitter fiction series by clicking here! This series features mini stories from Val McDermid, Phillipa Gregory, and many more!

As a part of Wordsfest this weekend, we're challenging everyone to write their own 140 character story. Follow Twitter Fiction London on Twitter (@TwitFicLDN) and tweet us your pint-sized tale. Don't have a twitter account? No problem! You can submit hardcopy entries at the WordsFest Book Fair in the Covent Garden Market from 10:00 until 2:00 on Saturday Oct 25. We’ll post and display your story along with others we receive.

Need more inspiration? Here's local author Paul Cavanagh's story:

 “@twitficldn You left your hairbrush at the cottage. On the mantel, behind the photo of my kids. Ann found it today. Don’t contact me again.”
