I teach 2x per month ONLINE microficiton workshops. They are held in a private Facebook group and are asynchronous. Anyone, at any writing level, can participate.

PREVIOUS STUDENTS’ WORKSHOPPED STORIES HAVE BEEN INCLUDED IN THE BEST SMALL FICTIONS, BEST MICROFICTION, AND ESTEEMED LITERARY PUBLICATIONS SUCH AS SMOKELONG QUARTERLY, THE NEW YORK TIMES, and WIGLEAF.
RECENT TESTIMONIALS FOR MEG’S WRITING WORKSHOPS:
You have transformed so many people’s writing lives, mine included! -Frances Gapper

You are such an inspiring teacher. -Nadia Jacobsen
I fell in love with flash in your workshops, Meg! -Karen Schauber

Meg has inspired many of us to have our writing dreams come into fruition. -Annie Bien
You have a big shout out in the Acknowlegements of my new book. Couldn’t have written it without you. -Jayne Martin
I am inspired by the prompts and the other students and your marvelous, generous, generative energy. I live with the prompts for a few days, and then start writing (and I’ve been using your newsletter prompts as part of my daily writing practice, too). As a writing teacher, I’m also feeling renewed just by reading your comments to everyone and appreciating the way you work descriptively to help writers see what they have. It’s a technique I teach to undergraduates, and it’s hard for them!, so it helps me enormously to be in the middle of that kind of workshop to feel how it works when I’m not the orchestrator. In the middle of a very lonely pandemic, and sabbatical where I really can’t go anywhere, you’ve created these small, at home residencies that I love. Thank you. –Susan Morehouse
You are the best and one of a kind! – Andrea Disario Marcusa
This was grand, as are all your workshops, Meg. Super subject, terrific feedback, incredibly jaw-dropping talent. Stimulation PLUS fun! – Tracey Meloni
I learned so much from you two fabulous writers/teachers. You opened doors to rooms and worlds I didn’t know existed. Look forward to another workshop – Michelle Morris
