Do you read the New York Times “Tiny Love Stories” and think: I have a big, tiny love story? Can you imagine writing your life story in 100 words, or less? This workshop will focus on the exploding writing genre of micro fiction and non-fiction. Through prompts, writing samples, and in-class discussion, participants will write several fiction or creative nonfiction stories– concise, vivid stories–in 100 words or less. Writers will focus on characters, on plot, on metaphor, and ultimately, on voice in order to create micro-stories that expand writing. The workshop leader will offer to every participant a post-class critique via email to a story written in class.
