Event description
A fast-paced and fun workshop where we'll dissect and create tiny tales of up to 100 words.

About this event

What will be covered in this workshop?

Come and learn how to write the shortest of short stories - the micro. In this workshop we'll study stories of up to 100 words that still have movement, tension and emotional impact. This will be a fast-paced, insightful and invigorating session crammed with examples, prompts and exercises that will teach you the skill of leaving just enough story on the page and leave you bursting with ideas. Once we've written some stories, you will have the opportunity to share your writing (not compulsory!) and receive feedback, and you'll also be given some ideas on where to submit. Suitable for writers of all levels in a friendly, positive and supportive environment.

Who is teaching this workshop?

Gaynor is an award-winning writer who has had tiny stories published by Paragraph Planet, AdHoc Fiction, 50 Word Stories, Funny Pearls, FlashBack Fiction and the National Flash Fiction Day Anthology.

When does this workshop happen?

Sunday, February 20, 7:00 AM PST / 10 AM EST / 3 PM GMT / 8:30 PM IST

How long is this workshop?

Two hours.

How is this workshop presented?

This workshop is online, live, and interactive. Participants are encouraged (but not required) to keep their video cameras on, as online events are much more fun when we can all see each other.

We'll gather on Google Meet, which is very similar to Zoom and has built-in closed captioning. I will send you the link for the workshop by November 7.

Will this workshop be recorded?

No, this workshop will not be recorded.

What is the Crow Collective?

Crow Collective workshops are by the writing community, for the writing community. The prices are low so they are more accessible, and there are two free spots (if needed).

Why can't I access the ticket button using the Apple Eventbrite app?

This is a decision on Eventbrite's part. You should be able to access the ticket button using the website instead. If you're still having troubles, feel free to get in touch.
