Last week, Twitter — in conjunction with the New York Public library, among others — held its first festival of fiction. I’m happy to say that I participated via the Twitter zine Nanoism, which held a daily contest during the festival. I submitted most days and was chosen as the featured selection for the theme “Legendary.” It was fun to participate and I hope the festival becomes an annual event.
Here’s an article by Nanoism that recaps their contest themes and the winners, including links to each story.
