What are Micro Stories?

Microstories are approximately 500-word stories set in the UNITY Macroverse.  They are created as an entry point for contributing community members who are keen to participate in the story-telling portion of UNITY.  The intention of Microstories is to build upon the main story canvas by filling-in potentially:
  • Origin stories
  • Expansion of the Graphic Novel story line
  • Introduction of new Story concepts within UNITY Canvas.
  • Introduction of possible new Graphic Novel titles
  • Creation of UNITY story compendiums

Each Microstory evolves into a Mini Story, which in turn will create a Short Story which happens when the word count reaches between 50,000 to 75,000 words.  Eventually, those titles that are popular might even be considered for a separate Novel line.

New Microstories are created weekly, as well as its compilation into a Mini Story monthly.  These Microstories are designed to complement the existing mainline of the Graphic titles and to show how the UNITY Macroverse canvas is alive beyond the main story arc.  To find our more about the latest Unity Macroverse Titles available.
