Postcard Shorts: Stories that Fit on a Postcard

Thank you so much to Postcard Shorts for publishing “Bird”, a micro short (250 words or less) I wrote. The inspiration for this site comes from a challenge made by George Hay, a science fiction magazine editor in the 1970s, to Arthur C. Clarke (and others). The challenge was to write a short story to put on a postcard.

It’s a good challenge for all writers to try and create a story with a limited word count. The process makes you consider each word and helps build your editorial muscle. Give it a try!
