Outshine is a new microzine for Twitfic (Twitter fiction), in the same genre as Thaumatrope. If Twitfic is a new term, then consider it coined. I almost called it "Twitter fiction literary magazine", but that would have been Twitficlitmag, a word which has an odd meaning depending on where you put the syllabic break.

Anyway, the point is that Outshine accepted a submission of mine, which will appear on January 24. I'm very pleased to be a part of the bleeding edge new wave of professional microfiction. Understanding how to consider and/or regard Twitfic is going to take some thought, however. For example, paid Twitfic is eligible for Hugo award nomination in the short story category. Kind of astounding, no?

Tweet, tweet!
