Lists. Recipes. Google Map essays. YouTube story videos. Serial tweets. Hermit crab stories. Micromemoir. Flash fiction or nonfiction. These are all contemporary experimental forms of writing. I was on a kicky writer’s panel at the Conversations & Connections Conference this past weekend in D.C. and here is a cool list of journals that publish alternative forms of writing:
Brevity, Sweet, PANK, Hobart, Slice, The Collagist, The Normal School, Diagram, Prick of the Spindle, Paper Darts, Barrelhouse, while other journals, such as Tin House or The Fourth River, also seek out new voices and styles.

Big Man, Little Man: The Clay-mation Movie
Pandora Cruise: The Bermuda Triangle
