On this day will be awarded the prize of the Spanish micro-fiction contest Brevísimo, created in 2010 by two Ecolint teachers Hortensia Cid and Rosie Smith-Gillespie, in collaboration with the Albatros bookshop in Geneva. It is open to young people under 25 and rewards the 50 best creations. The texts selected by the jury composed of micro-fiction author José Luis Torres Vitolas and publisher Rodrigo Diaz will be published. The Tulipán Prize, a special award created in memory of Rose Smith-Gillespie, who passed away in 2012, will be awarded to the favourite creation of our guest author.
A demanding and powerful literary genre, micro-fiction involves a whole range of techniques and artifices such as ellipsis, meta-literature, evocation, all in less than 600 characters. Contest participants can rely on a series of reading-writing workshops.
