Three Minute Microfiction

By its definition, the key to good microfiction is brevity. There is no time for plot and character development; every word must count. The writer plunges the reader into the story and wrenches them back out, leaving it to the reader's imagination to reflect upon what they have read.

Three Minute Microfiction features three microfiction pieces from the Tall And True writers' website, written and narrated by Robert Fairhead.
