I'm very grateful to be a part of Twisted Shorties II as well as Twisted Shorties. Dozens of authors from Gather.com have put their best foot forward to create a compendium of miscellany like no other.
Gather.com is a unique model for a discussion, meeting, and news site. It features everything from celebrity gossip to recipes. But the writing community is a truly vibrant group of people, encouraging and supportive, putting out great work of enormous variety and mentoring fellow writers to a degree hard to find anywhere else on the web.
Now comes the second volume of enormously creativitous and versatilatenous literaturity. The sheer creative variety makes this a smorgasbord non pareil. The other thing that makes this collection unique is that we are not just writing for ourselves, alone in our garret. We are writing for each other, prompted by our editors, inspired by our mentors, encouraged by our friends.
It's free, it's loaded with inspiration and enthusiasm, and there are some damn good writers represented here, including Greg Schiller, Barbary Chaapel, Len Maxwell, Kevin Ewing, Patricia Gilliam, A.F. Stewart, and Sheila Deeth, among many others.
Did I mention it's digestible? The fiction is sudden and the poetry is friendly. Perfect for downloading to your phone and reading on the poddy. What are you waiting for?
