Top definition
A short story writing technique that uses the absolute minimum amount of written words to support and convey maximum meaning.

The word stems from a portmanteau of the words "skeleton" and "text", where the 'skeleton' is the minimum amount of support a human body needs, and 'text' referencing the written format.
Have you read those Jimmy TwoTone stories yet? It's as if entire story has been stripped-down to a skeleton made purely out of words; I believe it's called "skeletext".
