“Brevity is the soul of wit.” And of other things, too.
HOOT is a magazine on a postcard. Authors from around the world submit their microfiction (very short stories), nonfiction, and poetry to us. Every month, we select one piece to be published on the front of a 4″ x 6″ postcard. We then design a visual element to match the writing, and mail the issue to subscribers!
The idea is that current, quality literature should be accessible to everyone—something you can participate in and share! Our postcards are short (<150 words), and small enough to be hung as art on fridges or passed to friends. We also try to hide HOOT‘s around cities in creative ways (think “guerilla literature”), and run free writing workshops (online and in person).
