Launching today (14 September), The Society of Authors Short Story Tweetathon is a first-time collaboration between tweeters and top authors to write short stories in five tweets

The Tweetathon starts today at 11am on #WriterWednesday. One story each week will be written for five consecutive weeks, with a new line tweeted every hour on the hour between 11am and 4pm. A leading author will tweet a first line, and tweeters following the SoA are invited to compete the next four sentences. Tweets will be curated and each winning story will be published on the SoA website. Today's first line will be written by Ian Rankin. Simon Brett, Neil Gaiman, Joanne Harris and Sarah Waters are the other leading authors who will tweet first lines.

The Short Story Tweetathon is part of the SoA's short story in campaign in response to BBC R4's short story cuts.
