Criticism in 300 Words or Less

300 Reviews is a curious, trenchant, and charming criticism website that publishes 300-word reviews of everything from the gender binary to cats. It may remind you of The Rumpus’s Ted Wilson Reviews the World, which we’ve already expressed public love for, but 300 Reviews is a bit more serious and varied compared to Wilson’s loopy digressions. Plus, 300 Reviews has a diverse cast of reviewers—and is always looking for new contributors. Maybe you want to review your wicker chair? Or perhaps your Grandmother? Maybe that’s just me.
