Julian sits on the couch, staring at the floor. It’s so quiet in the house. A waterbug crawls across the floor. He catches a glimpse of the bug in his periphery as it scurries away toward the front door. Julian doesn't move a hair or an inch. The bug slips away underneath the door, unscathed.




Every Friday, Gotham Writers hosts virtual sessions for writers to join. People from around the world are given a prompt and 15 minutes to write. We share our stories and listen to others while we provide a supportive environment. This is a collection of some of those stories.
