"Micro-literature in the Age of Social Media"


7-8 April 2018, SRMU, Campus, Lucknow

From micro-blogging sites like Twitter to Facebook pages like ‘The Lunatics’, flash-fiction has become a burgeoning genre which engages most of the society. This has become an escape zone for most of the occupied minds where ironically, the theme of these ‘tiny tales’, often revolves around the aspects of life and interpersonal relationships. In this modern era, where there is scarcity of time, individuals often choose to write innovatively and social media gives a platform for these varied voices to be heard across the globe. One can see immense talent and creativity on websites for ‘spill poetry’ and other limitless opportunities to communicate several ideas. Deviating from the popular culture of canonical literature, here, there is no hierarchy, no authority, no monolithic truth, no fixed genre, so horizon of perspectives is broadened and art is liberated.

The present literary festival, organised by SRMU, focuses on the theme of ‘micro-literature’ in collaboration with Kitaab, which was founded by journalist and writer Zafar Anjum in 2005 in Singapore. Kitaab.org is an esteemed organisation that offers a promising worldwide pedestal not only to the budding authors but also to the editors and publishers. Extending from the areas of literary fiction and translation to filmmaking, Kitaab caters to all genres in English and other South Asian languages.
