Ready to Join?

The Seattle Literature Group & the Riga Language and Literature Group are teaming up to hold joint microfiction challenges quarterly! Our first event will be Summer Protected content we’re looking forward to having you join us.

Even if you’ve never written before, even if you’ve never written in English before, you can write microfiction! With a limit of Protected content , this is something we can all accomplish.

Here’s how it works:

1) Pick one of the thematic options below.
2) Compose a story including the designated action + key word(s).
3) Keep your word count to Protected content less!
4) Post your stories in the comments on this activity’s wall so we can all read through them. Feel free to submit as many as you like!

Option A
Action: You open the door and discover a trail of bloody footprints
Keyword phrase: “the squeak of […]” (fill in the blank with whatever is squeaking in your story!)

Option B
Action: You find yourself in a place you do not recognize and you sense others watching you
Keyword phrase: “the uncertainty”

Option C
Action: You have a dream, a vision, a hope, but it has never come true…yet.
Keyword phrase: “finally, I got a magic wand”

Please post your story on the wall for your local group. Then feel free to visit the other group’s activity wall to check out their submissions, too!

All of us from both the Seattle and Riga groups will meet up together via Zoom on Saturday, June 27 to enjoy discovering our creations.
