Be Bold. Be Brief.

It should come as no surprise that publishing has come to a halt. But reading may well be at an all time high. Click on New Writing Etc. to read the best poetry and flash fiction from residents of the Isle of Wight.

While we wait – isolated – for normal service to resume, Brevity is gratefully accepting submissions and posting the best here. Submission guidelines remain the same: 500 words or less from residents of the Island.

Top tip: now’s not the time to submit work that leaks gut-wrenching melancholy.

Five Hundred Words or Less is More.
