The microliterature here ranges across most short forms of writing that do not have line breaks: flash fiction, prose poetry, postcard fiction and nonfiction. Given the richness of form, the anthology has been arranged as a series of micro-flights that are placed in juxtaposition with each other.  Instead of placing all the flash fiction together, all the light-hearted pieces together or all the pieces with historical landmarks together, the microliterature in this collection has been grouped in small numbers with a focus on colligation.  In this way, the writing in this anthology traverses areas from droughts, hunters, caring for elderly mothers and the burning of the Aboriginal flag to birthmarks, arms and even the desire to be Amelie. In this anthology the little things are coruscating moments that lead to variety of weighty awakenings.
