Go Small or Go Home: The Art of Microfiction

June 4, 2018


Join a small group of 12 writers for a month-long online writing workshop in microfiction. Learn how less can truly be more.

When a story is short, a writer must choose each of her 300 words (or less!) like she’s mining for diamonds. In this workshop, we’ll look at narrative poets and prose poets, while studying examples of masters of the microfiction genre. You’ll learn to use rich, unexpected language while honing in on the moment that offers the greatest impact. Ideas for structuring your stories will be explored and participants will have the opportunity to generate a wide range of new work. You’ll finish with four drafts and plenty of ideas for launching new pieces.

This online workshop takes place June 4–July 2
