The Micro-Essay: Adventures in Short Form Nonfiction

All Levels. Between Twitter and wall feeds, blogs and Brevity, some of the most exciting contemporary writing is happening in the space between 140 characters and 1,000 words. In this generative course, we’ll explore the ranges of short-form nonfiction, learn how restraint and constraint can enhance the power of prose, and practice the art of economy in our own micro-essays, inspired by readings and prompts.
