The Micro Prose Chapbook: The Body
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 use prompts inspired by the body to discover the stories that are waiting to be told. We'll explore how these pieces may be submitted individually or as part of a larger body of work. For writers who are open to seeing where their writing takes them.
