Available on Amazon

This anthology features 25 GCW writers and their award-winning flash fiction and poetry.

Laughter. Love. Loss. Life.

You don’t need many words to capture a story’s essence.

In this collection, the Gold Country Writers present flash fiction and poetry that highlight the ups, downs, and oddities of life.

Inside, you’ll find tales containing:
· Death: “It was an accident. Wasn’t it?”
· Dark humor: “She screamed out to me to help because she didn’t know I did it to her.”
· Humor: “I certainly wasn’t ready for the man to come to the door naked.”
· Loss: “Daddy rests below the stone in perfect rank and file.”
· Sports: “Batters comin’, batters goin’, runnin’, catchin’, slidin’ by.”
· Childhood: “…danced on sunburned feet down the dirt road.”

And much more.

This anthology celebrates award-winning poetry, 59-word and 100-word stories that are short and sharp but can hold an entire narrative. There’s much to be said for brevity.

Let us explore life together through super short stories and powerful poetry.
