Even if you’ve never written before, even if you’ve never written in English before, you can write microfiction! With a limit of Protected content , this is something we can all accomplish.

Here’s how it works:
1) Pick one of the thematic options below.
2) Compose a story including the designated action + required key word.*
3) Keep your word count to Protected content less!
4) Post your stories in the comments on this activity’s wall so we can all read through them. Feel free to submit as many as you like!

*Regarding the keywords & actions, you can use them in any tense or grammatical form.

Option A
Keyword: weed
Action: to believe

Option B
Keywords: octopus
Action: to breathe

Option C
Keyword: rubber band
Action: to slide

Please post your story here on the event wall anytime (before the event is okay!).

At the event we'll talk about our writing experiences, share our reactions to the stories posted, and explore the themes that appeared in the stories.
