Making Much Of The Moment: A Guide To The Micro-Memoir
from The WRITER
A true hybrid, the micro-memoir strives to combine the extreme abbreviation of poetry, the narrative tension of fiction, and the truth-telling of creative nonfiction. The form might be considered a subset of the larger category of "flash nonfiction," but it's hard to draw strict lines here, because the recent proliferation of boundary-busting work is accompanied by a proliferation of terms – Anne Carson's "short talks," J. Robert Lennon's "anecdotes," Sarah Manguso's "aphorisms,” James Richardson's "ten-second essays:" all of these could at times be called "micro-memoirs."
