Micro-fiction or flash fiction are stories ranging from 50-1000 words. Come and learn from (and become) an expert in this popular genre. Know how narrative and form work together to create worlds in miniature while developing skills that will benefit your longer works.

This workshop will take place online. Detailed instructions for participation will be provided.

You Will Learn:

  • To make every word count
  • To layer multiple meanings in a short piece
  • To explore both humour and melancholy intensely
  • To experiment with language, form and genre
  • To make sophisticated use of metaphor and imagery
