Twitter Fiction Festival
How much can you say in a 140-character tweet? We know that a tweet can be much more than just a news post. But Twitter pushes the limits of short messages further announcing Twitter Fiction Festival, a 5-day event during which storytellers from all over the world are invited to experiment with the possibilities of the world’s number one micro blog for fiction writing.
Twitter Fiction Festival will begin on Wednesday, November 28th. and last five days, during which the participants will share their creative literary projects with the world. There are hardly any limits to what’s allowed: in fact, Twitter encourages participants to “explore content formats that already exist on Twitter”, such as telling a story in tweets or live-tweeting, and create new ones.
This online storytelling event will be held entirely on Twitter and can be followed using #twitterfiction hashtag. Among the judges who will decide whose works will be showcased by Twitter are acknowledged authors Meg Waite Clayton and Teju Cole, and marketing director for The Penguin Press Ryan Chapman.
I’m looking forward to the results of Twitter’s creative challenge. And remember, tweeters, on Novemver 28th. the micro blog will be full of fiction, if you by any chance read that a Martian ship has just landed nearby your town and started shamelessly attacking people. Hopefully the War of the Worlds panic of 1938 doesn’t happen all over again ;)
