About

Brevity may be the soul of wit, but it’s also a unique constraint for writers. How do you get an idea through in as few words as possible? How do you express a mood in 2,000 words? How do you build a character in the space of a tweet or two? It’s a challenge, and with the popularity of microfiction on social media and other flash fiction challenges, one that many seem willing to take up! Inspired by Blue Neustifter’s delightful story “Ghost”, Small Loves will collect the best LGBTQ+ micro- and flash-fiction that writers have to offer.
