#CarrotRanchRocks on Facebook connects geology with the online literary community of Carrot Ranch, where writers craft a literary art form known as flash fiction (99 words, no more, no less). Each rock becomes a prompt for the imagination.
Writers from the Carrot Ranch Literary Community live around the globe — across the US, Canada, the UK, South Africa, Poland, Spain, Germany, and Australia. They compose stories about the rocks and include real details, such as where and when it was found, and what its general identification is. (Note: Charli is a professional writer, not a geologist with a lab.)
The hashtag #CarrotRanchRocks provides public space to share rocks with their assumed identities, imagined lives, and recorded serial numbers. This sharing supports the mission of Carrot Ranch to make literary art accessible and to encourage interest in earth science. We connect through art and curiosity.
Together, we can make the world a better place.
Rock on, read, and write!
