Dear Red Riding Hood: Writing Postcard Fiction

Dear Red Riding Hood: Writing Postcard Fiction


May 6, 2023    
9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Would you write to warn Bluebeard’s bride? What if Baba Yaga or El Cuco wrote you a postcard? Join us for this generative Zoom workshop in which we’ll generate 100-word epistolary microfiction stories based on fairy and folk tales. We’ll use writing exercises and visual prompts to create vivid, voice-driven postcard stories.

Whether you are new to writing 100-word stories or a veteran microfiction scribe looking for a fun way to sharpen your voice, you will enjoy corresponding with your favorite heroines, heroes and villains. At the end of the workshop, participants will be invited to choose their favorite one-hundred-word story and to read it to the group. Participants are also encouraged to read at the Writespace Reading and Open Mic on Friday, May 26th.
