The Princeton Public Library will be encouraging everyone to explore their creativity this summer with an ongoing micro-fiction project. Micro-fiction is a complete story that is usually less than 200 words long, sometimes as few as six words. Imagine a novel crossed with a haiku where you express a moment or a tale or a life experience. What matters is not the size of the word count in the story, but the size of the story in the word count.
The project kicked off Thursday June 8 at 6:30 with Glen Smith, who explained the genre’s variants and shared his experience as a writer of short fiction. Glen has been published in several magazines and is currently focused on flash- and micro-fiction.
On Monday of each week from June 8 through August 1, you are invited to bring in a micro-story to be posted on our “Write Here” bulletin board in the corner of the Library Café. In addition, the writing corner offers a number of cool journals to encourage off-the-cuff creativity. Freewrite what is on your heart that day or read what others have written to share with the community.
