400 Words

I read about 400 Words in Newsweek, strangely enough. 400 Words is a magazine of essays 400 words or less on a given topic. The publisher solicits submissions through Craigslist, then compiles and publishes them in small half-size books. The topic for the first collection is, “Autobiographies”, the second issue’s topic is, “Compulsions”. Though it pains me to say this, I appreciate these bite-sized reads because I seem to be distracted often enough that reading novels has become nearly impossible. I read a few of the essays in the first edition, and some were good. Worth the $6 price tag. And you can also submit your own!
