About Curly Red Stories

Curly Red Stories is an online publication for writers of flash fiction. And, like the gypsies who dance in small spaces yet build a whole culture from what they say with their feet, Curly Red Stories aims to celebrate the gems of story that fly out of limited spaces. CR Stories cultivates the power of design in story—fiction as a design act, a compressed instance of story in a small space. The publication gives rise to writers who have a little designer in them.
