"Brevity is the Soul of Wit"
Twitter is easy, fast, and convenient. The World Mind Network is taking further and wants to know if tweets can produce writing of lasting quality.
There are poetic forms that can be completed in fewer than 140 characters (examples on Twit Lit page): Limerick, Haiku, the Clerihew, Quintilla, the Than-Bauk, Sijo, Cinquain, and Kural.
Try your hand at creating tweets using these formats. Twit Lit is offering a prize for the best work, details & examples on web site.
Hurry up & get twittering - the deadline is Sept 1, 2009.
Email entries to Twitterlit@gmail.com. Include name, phone number and email to verify sender. Entries from a Twitter feed not accepted: re-tweeting complicates authenticating authorship.
