What do you get when you combine the compression and lyricism of poetry with the urgency of fiction? Micro prose!
In this two-hour Zoom workshop, we’ll dive into some examples or the form to identify the aspects of craft particular to micro and use those to inspire our own little stories. You’ll leave class with drafts-in-progress and a list of markets for your finished work.
Ideal for poets wanting to bust out into prose and fiction writers who yearn to be poets.
Please note: The workshop start time may change in the coming week. If there are any time changes, you will receive an email notification. You may also check back here for updates.
