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. We’ll be using prompts encouraged by archetypes to get the writing in flow, and explore how these pieces may be submitted individually or as part of a more extensive body of work. For writers of all genres who are open to seeing where their writing takes them.
