PicFic scores some love from MSNBC

MSNBC News posted a video story about Twitter fiction this morning. Both David Erlewine (one of our contributors) and myself make an appearance in the 2 minute 24 second clip.

Re-Tweet: week of 1 June 2009

Just in case you missed any issues of Twitter-zines this week, we published the work of:

TEN with meika loofs-samorzewski

TEN with David Erlewine

We’re thrilled to be halfway through our first fortnightly story (14 tweets) over at PicFic. David Erlewine is the brave soul that attempted this death-defying feat–a feat that subjected him to numerous re-write requests. But he (and we) survived to plant our flag “By Hand” at the top of the tweet-zine mountain. Poor David. He’d barely gotten home from his expedition when we banged on his door (and woke his kids from a nap) demanding an interview. And threatening to pitch our tent in his perfectly-manicured front lawn until he gave us one.
