Zathom for Fun and Flash Fiction

Zathom is a fun site for writers to hang out and hone their skills with “micro-literature inspired by unique Fathoms that tap into the psyche.”

An interactive space for writers to play in, the site gives you three words and you have to incorporate them in a 55-word story or poem. The work is available to be read publicly.

Want an example? One of John Reinhart’s pieces, “Objectivity,” recently scored high in their nature/sex competition. Read “Objectivity” here.

Follow their Facebook page for more challenges. Now that I’ve shared, I’m out of here to go play. See you there!
