December Micro Tale Contest – CLOSED

This genre of writing is relatively a new concept! Micro tale writing is exactly what the name suggests. It means writing less and conveying more. It’s a beautiful art of having a perpetual and deep influence or impact on the reader by simple few lines.

We are guessing it was invented for the modern reader who doesn’t seem to take the time (or have the time or interest) to even read captions on social feeds at times.

So what is a microtales really? The definitions are many, yet most prefer the story to be written in as less words as possible.

Here’s an example of a micro tale written in 38 words by one of our contributing writers!

We chose the number of words to be 50 words or lesser. Oh, have you not heard about it yet? We announced our first micro tale contest that’s running on our Instagram page

Here’s what you need to do! Follow our page on Instagram

  • Post a Micro tale (English only) on your Instagram feed from December 1st – 7th in 50 words or lesser
  • Tag us on Instagram and use the hashtag #writefluencemicro on your post/s

It’s that simple!

📢We’re doing constant features and shout-outs for the most neatly written micro tales on our Instagram stories throughout the week

🏆 We’ll announce THREE winners for the same on December 8 on our feed and stories!

Follow @writefluence and keep weaving words!

UPDATE

Spinning a microtale within 50 words is not an easy task. As they say – the shorter, the harder!

So when we checked all the beautiful tales on #writefluencemicro we were baffled with so many amazing entries out there. Yet, we had to select the best three amongst all the other lovely tales.

So here are the winners:

🥇 Vibhuti Bhandarkar

🥈 Nivedita Karmaran

🥉 Chitra Padmana

Congratulations, once again. Thank you to all the participants – it really keeps us going! Your support and love means a lot❤️
