Micro-essays have it all. Combining the narrative pleasures of fiction, the lyric inventions of poetry, and the resonant truths of non-fiction, the micro-essay is a fusion of some of today’s most popular literary techniques. Generally clocking in at less than 500 words, the micro-essay compresses a true-life story into a dazzling work of art. In this three-hour, generative workshop, the instructor will introduce examples of this explosive new genre and prompt students to draft their own micro-essays in class. Time will be set aside to discuss revision techniques and opportunities for publication.
