Submissions welcome

I just came across a delightful little flash fiction website which requires stories of 250 words or less - the ethos springs from the concept of what kind of stories could you fit on the back of a postcard. It's an interesting idea, and I think that Postcard Shorts have hit upon something workable. After all, with the rise of the Internet and the ability to send email as long as you have a computer and a connection, postcards seem to have become somewhat passe...which is such a shame, since I find that there's nothing nicer than receiving a postcard, to see another corner of the world, and to have a snapshot of somewhere I've never been landing on my doormat. Logging on to view someone's photos on Flickr isn't quite the same.
