Minicontos Coloridos is a collaborative project conceived by Brazilian journalist, writer and teacher Marcelo Spalding in 2013. The short tales are structurally and conceptually associated with colors in a playful way. To access the stories, the reader should mix the primary RGB colors through a pull down menu available on the website in HTML which hosts the tales interface. The website offers three blending options for each of the three primary colors, totaling 27 short tales. According to the author, the short tale is a micronarrative, with at most a page or a paragraph that had its antecedents in the prose poem and the Chinese fables. However, since the mid-twentieth century the short story has experienced extremely rapid forms from texts of writers like Cortázar, Borges, Kafka. Marcelo Spalding intends to increase the number of stories through collaboration with other writers. (Source: Luís Claudio Fajardo, I ♥ E-Poetry)
