Introducing Sketches

MGVT Sketches is a revival of the popular genre invented in the 16th century in England. A sketch story, literary sketch or simply sketch, is a piece of writing that is generally shorter than a regular book.  The term was most popularly used in the late nineteenth century. As a literary work, it is also often referred to simply as a sketch, and is mainly descriptive, e.g.. of places (travel sketch) or of people (character sketch).

MGVT Sketches are also Inspired by Alfred Harmsworth’s Halfpenny Marvels, story papers with a focused theme and defined length – usually 40,000 words, and with the same focus on providing “pure, healthy literature”.

MGVT Sketches are just perfect for:

  • Bedtime reading. Where long novels may disrupt sleep, MGVT Sketches are just the right length to provide light entertainment.
  • The daily commute. You could read a new story, discover a new place or learn something most interesting each day of the working week.
  • Travelling. Read a travel sketch of far away locations, all the while not becoming too lost in a novel that you miss the many wonders happening around you. The brevity and suggestive nature of MGVT sketches make them a travellers best friend.
  • Anytime!
