Writing fiction that’s less than 1,000 words seems easy but it’s not. You have to know what to say and what not to say within the condensed space of flash fiction, along with what moment is the most important. The best flash fiction is often a balance of prose and poetry.
This workshop will:
- Introduce you some basics regarding flash fiction
- Help you write a first draft of a piece of flash fiction
- Provide resources available regarding flash fiction that you can access after the workshop
All you need to bring is yourself and something to write with, and an open mind.
When: June 11, 2017, 1-3 PM
