This conference seeks to explore the increasing importance of this up-and-coming fictional form, and invites papers from academic researchers and creative writers which address the following topics, or other relevant discussions on short fiction of the late twentieth and twenty-first centuries:
- Literary transformations: the ways in which short-short fictions are altering genres, and changing our definitions of literature;
- Literary forms: effective forms of short-short fictions; what might typify the genre;
- Production and reception: how short-short fiction might be challenging traditional ways of publishing and disseminating literature;
- Writers and readers: how working in this emerging form has transformed writers, writing practices, and readership.
