121 Words

Welcome to 121 Words, a site dedicated to showcasing and spreading flash fiction literature, thereby creating a new writing community.
Almost 121 years ago, Anton Chekhov prophetically stated: “Brevity defines the art of writing”. In our hectic age of condensed information and rapid-firing social media, microfiction has become the latest challenge in providing escapism for the overactive mind.
Yet how can any story, taking less space than an average computer screen and requiring less than a minute to read, be truly moving? How may lines of text make a whole story?
If you‘re wondering what you could possibly relate in the space of exactly 121 Words, just start writing and trust us - It’s all you need for a great story!
