Event description

Description

Microfiction/Macro Income at Yule Love It Lavender Farm. The lavender is in bloom, and we are ready to immerse ourselves with Dorene O'Brien, facilitator, and Iris Lee Underwood, farm owner and host. Microfiction, the haiku of the prose world, is one of the most popular contemporary writing forms with major literary magazines requesting submissions and sponsoring high paying contests. A microfiction story can be read quickly, hence its title “smoke long” in China for stories that can be read in the time it takes to finish a cigarette. In this workshop students will learn the art of literary brevity through reading masterful examples of the form and writing microfiction stories of 50-300 words for publication or as launching pads for larger works. In addition, we will discuss potential venues for workshop creations.

Event includes a catered vegeterian lunch.
