"Don't tell me the moon is shining; show me the glint of light on broken glass." - Anton Chekhov

Now that is a classic principle to write by - the proverbial show versus tell.

Have a story in mind? Liminal taps into the elements - vivid imagery, robust characterization, well-structured narrative - that will bring your story to life.

In a way, stories go through a rite of passage to become what it is. Liminal welcomes this process, encouraging experimentation and new dramatic discoveries along the way of crafting a story.
