Literature in Miniature: A Study of Micro Fiction & Prose Poetry

with Caleb Berg


Dates: Monday-Thursday 6/27/22-6/30/22
Time: 9 - 11 am (PT) // 12 - 2 (ET)
Ages: 9-14

Sometimes, the biggest ideas are best expressed in the tiniest of forms. In Literature in Miniature, we’ll explore micro-fiction and prose poetry. You will learn to condense your horizons into a style of writing perfected by writers like Lydia Davis, Daniil Kharms, Gertrude Stein, and many others. You will write multiple discrete pieces per day and finish the class with enough writing to fill up a chapbook.


Stone Soup and Society of Young Inklings are both nonprofit organizations, and part of our collaborative mission is to celebrate the full, vibrant diversity of youth writers' voices and stories.
