VSS365: An Anthology (Volume 1) - September 2019

The Twitter behemoth that is VSS365 keeps on rolling and taking on all before it. For those not in the know VSS365 comprises a daily Twitter challenge where a monthly host selects a word to be used as a prompt for the writers to use for a story. So these mini stories are all just tweet length, you'll be surprised at the variety and ingenuity between these pages.
