Time to Thank You Too

It’s been about a week and a half since last I thanked the many people who have helped out the MicroFiction RowHouse project and GoFundMe campaign, so here goes a list of folks who’ve donated time, money, advice and support since then. Again, if I forget to mention someone who has helped, my apologies! Feel free to let me know if I have.

Sign-Up for Workshops at MicroFiction RowHouse

Dalton Ghetti

It’s time to start signing up for workshops for MicroFiction RowHouse! To sign up, just email me and tell me which workshop you are interested in. The workshops will be limited to 7 people, with priority seating given to those people who have donated $50 or more to the GoFundMe campaign. These are going to be great.

August 17, 6:30-8:30 pm: Microfiction Writing Workshop. Joe Young will lead a workshop in writing microfiction, tiny stories of 10 or 25 or 100 words. Get tips on cramming a whole lot of character, setting, conflict, etc, into a really small space. I’ve published a bunch of it, including my book of microficions, Easter Rabbit. Bring a notebook!

September 19, 5–7:30 pm: Photocopy Transfer Workshop. Wintergreen oil can be used to transfer a toner based image or text onto paper, wax, fabric, wood, and some other lucky substrates. Encaustic painter Christine Sajecki will demonstrate and teach several possibilities. We will have some odd photocopies and substrates but feel free to bring what inspires you. Keep in mind that your photocopy will transfer in reverse so make your photocopies in mirror mode (especially important for text transfers. More info on what to bring after signup.

September 30, 3–4:30 pm. How to Rant: A Workshop. Do you love to rant, but want to up your game? Are you clear on the difference between a rant and a complaint? Can you effectively run tangents while ranting? Come to the workshop and have fun with all this and more. Led by Dylan Kinnett.
