Microfiction - a fresh way to think about writing at university

University study should be creative as well as academic, and writing should be fun.  That is the philosophy behind our microfiction sessions, where we use stories of less than 10 words as a way to think about three key skills for university success: communicating ideas, extracting ideas, and organising ideas.  

Delivered in three one hour parts, these sessions can stand alone, or be taken as a series – the choice is yours.  Each workshop is repeated twice. 

Microfiction: Writing - Tuesday 2 October, 2pm and Wednesday 3 October 11am

Microfiction: Reading - Wednesday 3 October, 2pm and Thursday 4 October, 11am
