Micro, or flash, fiction distills a story to its essence. This workshop will focus on creating a new 300-word "narrative in miniature" each week, based on a given prompt. We will explore character development, narrative arc, and emotional resonance with this powerful story form. In a generous and generative format, writers will be encouraged to take risks with language and ideas, and be energized by writing tight, honing skills, and turning the spark of an idea into the flame of a story. Our goal is to inspire and nurture one another and ourselves as we expand possibilities for our creative practices.
