Story Seed Vault



Story Seed Vault is an online publication focused on micro-fiction, stories that are a maximum of 140 characters (in adherence to the limitations of Twitter publishing). We accept science fiction, speculative fiction, and fantasy fiction. However, we are most interested in fiction that is inspired by science in the real world – whether it’s a research article, hard science discovery, soft science theory, or anything you associate with science in your daily life.

We are looking for stories that make us think of the future, that change the way we see ourselves and the world around us.
