Todos llenamos un globo alguna vez, pero no todos sabemos qué es un microrrelato. Lo aprenderemos. Leeremos a grandes autores del género, exploraremos maneras de acercarnos a nuestra propia escritura de microrrelatos. Hablaremos de la elipsis, el humor, la entrada y salida del texto, de las preguntas y la tensión que ha de haber para que el aire no se escape. El microrrelato es como un globo que, al final, explota. Un buen microrrelato permanece en nosotros, no se agota.
