The Twitter Fiction Festival returns, now with Margaret Atwood


The Twitter Fiction Festival will return from May 11-15 for another a five-day celebration of creative work on Twitter.

This year the festival has teamed up with Penguin Random House and the Association of American Publishers, with featured authors including Margaret Atwood, Lemony Snicket, Lauren Beukes and Eric Jerome Dickey. Anyone from any country may submit their work, however, and potentially see it featured in the author showcase.

Entries can involve everything from parody accounts and poetry to Vines and crowdsourced fiction, just so long as they're tweeted. Check out last year's top entries for inspiration, and then get inventive. "We love fiction that uses Twitter functionality in the most creative way possible," reads the festival's website. "That means perhaps something more than just tweeting out a narrative line-by-line."
