Many writers of both fiction and non-fiction will have heard of micro-fiction but most of these will be unable to explain exactly what it is.

What exactly it is ?Traditionally short stories are over 1,000 words long and are found in many magazines and newspapers. Micro-fiction tends to tell a story in much less than this word count, sometimes even containing no more than 50 words - which is quite a feat in which to tell a whole story.

Originally this genre was called flash fiction but as word counts became shorter and guidelines grew tighter, the term micro-fiction was created and has found it’s place quite comfortably in the modern circles of literature.
