Have you penned fables featuring Flickr? Tales told through texting? Pinterest prose, Reddit reading, LinkedIn lit, irony over Instagram — or flash fiction in the framework of Facebook? If so, your work may have a place in ONLY INTERCONNECT, a forthcoming book exploring the intersection between social media and short stories.

Digital media is now an inescapable aspect of how our lives are lived, and it influences who, what, where, why and how we read — and write. Increasingly, writers not only invoke emails, iPads and even good old MySpace in our plots, but integrate interactive conventions into the actual form and structure of our work.

ONLY INTERCONNECT seeks highly creative work whose content and/or form are inspired by social media — great writing that moves beyond using using digital forms as mere quirks or gimmicks. In essence, we’re looking for effective, provocative storytelling whose form and content just happens to be pretty damn innovative, too.

Writing by women and queer writers and authors of color especially welcome. Please submit online: https://onlyinterconnect.submittable.com/submit
