Churchgate, Mumbai -
Two girls driven by the passion and enthusiasm to shake things up have joined hands together to get some wordplay for the millennials. Being hopeless lovers of wordplay, and not having enough of the beautiful musings that pop up on our screens day in day out, they together thought of bringing the best of the minds behind these words to one platform, by putting together India’s first ever Micro-Fiction Fan Fest.
The event is curated and organized by Khushboo Balwani Rawal and Hiral Malde Shah and the girls have joined hands with those who have had the nation; especially the youth fall in love with their magical world of minimalistic expression. When asked about the idea behind the fest, the duo said “Flash fiction in the form of literature, music, poetry, et al has been ruling our mind space along with the digital space. It’s time that Micro-fiction got its own platform and literati. We bring the long and short of literature to the youth instead of waiting for them to come to it and strive to make literature more accessible.”
The first edition of TMFFF will be held on 1st and 2nd April 2017. The edition will see India’s most loved micro-fiction curators, content creators, and youth icons who rule the content ecosystem by breaking stereotypes.
