Author Quote of the Week

“A children’s story that can only be enjoyed by children is not a good children’s story in the slightest.”- C.S. Lewis


Flash Fiction is one of my favorite literary genres. It’s perfect for our super-fast, hyper-relevant, uber-social world.

Do you think you can write some Flash Fiction of your own? Here’s a new challenge: write a piece of flash fiction and I’ll publish it right here on NOTEWORTHY LITERATURE…and not a back page either…right here in the front. You only get about a 1,000 words to make an impression on someone. Can you make someone laugh, cry, or scream! Go on, give it a shot and you could see your work on this page. Send your stories to Don’t just copy and paste to this post.

Good luck!

Literary Quote of the Week

“In English my name means hope. In Spanish it means too many letters. It means sadness, it means waiting. It is like the number nine. A muddy color. It is the Mexican records my father plays on Sunday mornings when he is shaving, songs like sobbing.” – The House on Mango Street (Sandra Cisneros)
