Hello Rabbi!
Coming out, in joy

In 100 words

The new theme at Qarrtsiluni this month is "short shorts" -- vignettes, drabbles, microfiction. (One wonders whether the editors will choose to include haiku?)

The first posting in the theme is "Index of first lies" by beloved once (and future?) blogger Teju Cole. It's wryly hilarious.

Submissions are open; if you have wee works (100 words or fewer!) to share, send them along. Fiction, poetry, and nonfiction are equally welcome, as are images.

I've long enjoyed both reading and writing short-shorts. They require delightfully sparse concision. At their best, these tiny vignettes fling open wide windows into the vasty deep.
