Little Fictions is
once more opening its doors to newly-minted submissions for its upcoming live shows. Submissions will be judged by a team of two editors and two actors who are on the lookout for new writing to be programmed in upcoming live shows.
What are we looking for?
want fiction with strong dialogue and memorable characters that will delight
and amaze us. Stories that take off on flights of fancy as well as ones that take
a satirical or offbeat look at life. Give us writing that rings with truth and
insight. Writing that will have the audience in stitches or close to tears.
We are looking for previously unpublished works of fiction up
to 2000 words in length in the form of microfiction, microlit, dramatic
monologues – in fact, any written form which will enthral a listening audience.
