A Unique Experience of Combining Micro Tales with Calligraphy


a Chance to Get Your Work Published in a Book!

Bringing to you Alicia’s calligraphy classes with extra zing.

Not only you get to learn calligraphy but also use it to paint your words with it.

More so, get a chance to publish your micro tale in a book with us!

Micro tales are tiny stories written in a form of poem or prose. The art is about expressing feelings or telling a story with focus on brevity and impact of words used. Number of lines in a micro tale usually ranges from around 3-10 with 100 as the maximum word limit.

What you’ll learn?

There will be a total of two sessions of 90 minutes each that will be held on weekends.

The first class will be about faux calligraphy where you’ll get to learn gorgeous hand lettering.

Material Required: You’ll need neat and clean sheets of white paper. No need for fancy brushes or pen, any pen will do.

In the second class, you’ll learn how to write micro tales and get to transform your vivid imagination into a micro tale with calligraphy.

  • After the class, you can submit a digital copy of your beautiful hand-written micro tale to us and we will print it in a book as a collection of micro-tales if it meets the quality standard.
