Bruce Holland Rogers has a unique subscription service. He writes short short stories and sends them to his subscribers worldwide. His stories vary from fables in far off lands to slices of contemporary life. He has won awards and keeps an interesting blog about his travels. He is currently living in England.
Because the subscription stories haven't been published, Rogers can still sell first run rights to magazines. Bruce's subscribers have the right to forward his stories to friends but not post or publish them. Now that's Guerilla Marketing!
I wonder if I would be up to the challenge of writing two postcard stories every month. It seems like a valuable discipline, purely from an artistic point of view. I also wonder if anyone has ever done this on a casual basis, among friends.
