Rose City Sisters will publish a new 100-word story every day in March. Micro fiction contributors include local novelists Petrea Burchard (Altadena), Margaret Finnegan (South Pasadena) and Bonnie Schroeder (Glendale), as well as more than two dozen writers from the U.S. and Canada. The site also publishes flash fiction, which are stories of 1,000 words.

From Rose City Sisters…

Life is short and so is micro fiction.  Just for fun, The Rose City Sisters want to post a new 100-word story every day in March. That’s 31 stories. If we get enough submissions, we’ll publish two a day. Three? It could happen.

Want in? Here are the rules:

  • Write a great story in 100 words. Keep it clean. The mothers of other contributors read this blog.
    • Give it a snappy title. Three or four words should do it. The words in the title don’t count against the 100-word maximum, but don’t get cute and send in a 300-word title.
    • Include your name. (And a tiny bio, if you’d like.)
    • Provide a link to your blog or website or social media profile and we’ll publish that, too. Maybe send a few readers your way.
    • Submit all of the above in an email to by Sunday, February 28, 2016.  Use the subject line Micro March.  You retain the rights to your work.

Go write something. We’re waiting.
