The Micro Prose Chapbook: Archetypes

In this six-week generative workshop, we'll write micro prose (300 words or less) with an eye toward a finished chapbook draft by the end. The theme will be archetypes. In addition to writing, we'll consider how these pieces may be submitted individually or organized as part of a more extensive body of work. For writers of all genres who crave completion and are open to seeing where their writing takes them.
