140 Character Writing Contest

What can you do with 140 letters, spaces and punctuation marks? How many (or how few) words does it take to tell a story? The creative impulse sometimes tells us to get it all down on the page – to hold nothing back and keep the expression flowing. But the muse can also work in the reverse – carefully sculpting and shaping – finding just the right word or a new way to say the same thing. Each word is a hinge that can alter a sentence.  

Gotham Writers’ Workshop is hosting a contest to see what exciting fiction, non fiction or poetry people can create with 140 characters or less. Join in and inspire us.
