Writing a Micro
with Laura Besley 

Writing a Micro with Laura Besley

Like a hummingbird, a great piece of micro fiction has a lot of heart for its size and, just like drinking nectar from a flower while in flight,  writing a really good piece of micro fiction takes huge skill. In this generative workshop Laura Besley will discuss some of the key elements needed to produce an unforgettable story of 300 words or fewer, and share some examples of exemplary micros. 

Participants will write and edit micro fiction through guided exercises & discussion.
