Call for Submissions: Six Minute Story: A Microfiction Experiment

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

By Chris Teja

While we at SMITH are firm believers in using a restricted amount of words to get to the heart of a story, there’s something to be said for the idea of restricting the amount time used to compose a story (An idea that seems strangely familiar after a year of working at SMITH and correcting people referring to our “Six-Minute” Memoirs.)

Enter Six Minute Story: An experiment in Microfiction that aims to give its users an outlet for creating a unique short story in just six minutes. The process is exactly as easy as it sounds: Complete the short registration process, write for six minutes without over-thinking it, and just like that, anybody can be a published author. It’s a sentiment that we can definitely get behind.
