Class Description

Tracing its origins back to early fables and parables, flash fiction is emerging as one of the most desirable and influential writing forms in the new publishing marketplace. Part prose, part poetry, this writing workshop is designed to push you that much closer to the short, sharp shock that only flash can deliver. By further exploring the ways in which story and language work together on the page, you will not only refine your own unique style and voice, but also recognize the conflicting and complementary qualities found in each that will best connect to the reader. In this class we will be writing stories ranging from 6 to 1,000 words drawn from exercises and weekly discussions on craft in online forums and live meetings to consider interesting and tighter ways to execute character and conflict, plot and theme while being ever accountable to language. The goal is to write 6 flashes, revise one, and submit for publication. Unlike the traditional workshop we will simply ask of our stories: Does it work?
