(I’m) On a Narrow Windowsill

I’m thrilled to have a picofiction of mine featured in the new Folded Word anthology:

On a Narrow Windowsill: Fiction and Poetry Folded onto Twitter

The editors?

J.S. Graustein (California) and Rose Auslander (New York)
Here’s what they say about the collection:

Written on four continents and read on six, the works in this anthology celebrate the birth of a new literary form: the tweet. Ironically, the 140-character limit of the Twitter platform has inspired new and veteran writers alike to stretch traditional boundaries. Some experiment with abbreviated poetic forms. Others create back-story through innuendo. All make every word—every character—count. This collection introduces 43 of these pioneers who venture out each day onto text’s narrow windowsill.


Geographically dispersed writers featured in the anthology include:

meika loofs samorzewski, S. KayNora Nadjarian,
Nathalie Boisard-BeudinChristian WardRose Auslander,
Amanda Lawrence AuverigneAshley BaldonMel BosworthEric BurkeOpal Castmin,

  1. wow. YOU are the LINK master!

  2. Karyn, you deserve a free copy for all that linkage. It must have taken you an hour! (And I’m not kidding about the copy.)

    • Nice! Yeah, it was time consuming, but interesting to visit all of those blogs. There were about four or five people I was unable to find connecting links for on the Folded Word bio sites, so, unfortunately, those few didn’t make the list. It was an ‘all or nothing’ enterprise.

  3. On that note, if your work is in the anthology and you don’t see your name in the list above, it’s only because I don’t have a link for you (eg., a website, Twitter account, webpage or blog). If you do have a link that I’m not aware of, let me know. I’ll gladly add your name and link you up.

  4. I still need to order the anthology! And what a terrific charity to pick :)

  5. It is very cool about the charity:-) Can’t wait to hold a copy of the anthology in my hands…
