Flash Fiction Workshop

Flash fiction creates narratives under 1,000 words (from one paragraph to a few pages), requiring the writer to be both brave and specific. The power of these stories lies in their brevity, often examining one small moment with a surprise twist. Whether called micro, sudden, short-short, hint, or pocket fiction, flash fiction stories insist that ideas are honed to their essence, while still offering theme, character, imagery, setting, point-of-view, and structure. Short reading assignments illustrate craft; in-class writing exercises put those techniques into practice. Participants will have the opportunity to have their mini tales discussed in class.

***Note: If you have taken this workshop before, you are welcome and encouraged to repeat it. I find that the repetition helps writers come to a deeper understanding of not only the flash genre, but also, the elements of craft. Since participants will be working at their own level, this workshop is appropriate for both beginners and experienced writers.
