Writing the Micro Memoir
Within the fast-growing atmosphere of hybrid forms of literature and somewhere between the six-word memoir and the book-length memoir stands the Micro Memoir. Often called Flash Memoir, these tiny, beautiful stories aren’t life squeezed down to fit into few pages (or less), but a captured moment in a life that opens into deeper, meaningful insights into the human experience. In this workshop, we’ll read published examples of micro-memoirs — from those complete within a single sentence to those made up of a few hundred words — and try our hand at writing our own. Participants will leave the workshop with at least one micro-memoir, and seeds enough for a lifetime.
