If these snippets - which are complete stories in themselves - appeal to you, make your way to a workshop conducted by Terribly Tiny Tales at The JamJar Studio in Dubai on Friday, October 27.

The session offers budding and established writers a peek into the evolving world of microfiction, a technique that involves telling a story in less than 50 words. The tales, themselves, span various genres - from drama and romance to horror and tragedies.
