Follow Friday – 101 Words

Posted by Rich - 24th July 2015

101 Words ( Words is a site devoted to user-submitted short stories that are exactly one-hundred-and-one words long.

Site creator Shannon started writing 101-word stories for their site back in 2005, but it wasn’t until 2007 when the site really came into its own, publishing regular pieces of microfiction from a wide range of contributors.

New stories are posted frequently, and there is always something fresh to read. In addition, their submission guidelines means that the stories on the site are new and never been seen before.
