200 CCs

Posted by Randi on Monday, April 11, 2016

What they want:
200 CCs are short stories of around 200 words. If you need hard guidelines, you can err about 15 words on either side. Too short and they are a different sort of microfiction. Too long and they are closer to flash fiction.

There are no genre restrictions to 200 CCs, but stories should be punchy, memorable, and complete if possible rather than vignettes (although I will make exceptions for particularly beautiful writing). Experimental formats are welcome as long as it’s something that can be reproduced without too much tricky typography and text formatting, particularly that which might not translate during any future site redesigns. Creative non-fiction is okay, but definitely a harder sell. I like poetic writing but straight poetry is very unlikely to win me over as I don’t think of 200 CCs as a poetry format. If in doubt, go ahead and submit.
Length: Around 200 words
Payment: $0.01/word or $2 flat (whichever is more)
Submission Guidelines:
