Topic: Grief Writing (2)
Tutor: Asha Rajan
Everyone has a story of grief or grieving. It’s an
emotion that unites all kinds of beings, both human
and non-human. These two workshops will explore
the key elements of grief writing through essays,
short stories and poetry. Learn how to write your
own short grief piece in ways that elicit a sense of
recognition and understanding in your reader.

August 21, 28
Topic: Micro/Flash Fiction (2)
Tutor: Asha Rajan
Can you convey a whole story in a tight word count?
People often think flash and micro fiction are easy to
write because they’re short, but the short word
count means you have to choose your words
carefully. In this course we’ll look at various very
short stories and the difference between flash and
micro fiction. We’ll explore what makes these tiny
stories successful or not, and how you can adopt
successful techniques to write a complete story
within the constraints of the tight word count.
