Putting my Stamp on Postcard Stories (It's really all about me)

Micro-Fiction Workshop

With Workshop Leader, Neil Sampson

How can you tell if you’re in a fiction or a micro-fiction workshop?

Two clues: In a micro-fiction workshop, the session will be shorter, and you really have to squint to read the handouts.

Ya with me?

I hope so. I’m looking for 200* writers who want to learn about plot, characters, voice, rhythm, dialogue, word play, etc.—yes, micro has lots of the macro fiction stuff, but it has some differences, too. We’ll look at ‘em.

Okay, I get it. You have a question: Why should I sign up if YOU’RE the one leading the workshop?

Answer: If you attend this session, I can almost** guarantee you a writing contract, and more than $150,000 in sales.

Bring a pencil (and $300 for the de riguer stop ‘n shop at my book table).

See you there!

* Could read ‘2’.

** Should read ‘not’.

About Neil:

Neil Sampson is a horticulturist who inhabits the worlds he hears in the whisperings of abandoned apple trees. Grafting poetry with prose, he fixes the science of plant physiology with the faith typified by the seed. An historian from way back who wishes he’d stayed there, you can find Neil on Twitter: @neilsam567. Neil has won various writing competitions, been published in the Nashwaak Review and has published two novels.
