Welcome to a three-hour intensive flash fiction-writing workshop. Flash fiction centers on the art of compression and the brilliance of brevity. To inspire and enliven us, we will read and briefly discuss a sampling of excellent, inventive short-short stories. The main focus of the workshop will be on your writing and we will work from prompts to generate ideas, encourage risk, and bring forth trouble (only trouble is interesting). Our goal is to enjoy our group’s collective charge and to produce a first draft of tiny but meaningful narratives. That’s a lot to accomplish in three hours. Please arrive on time and come prepared to make every moment of our time together worthwhile.
