The Flash Fiction Short Workshop (Now Online)

Please note: This class will now have online meetings. Your teacher will contact you with information on how to join the online classroom. To participate, students must have a stable internet connection with a computer or device with a webcam and microphone.

In a world where attention spans are shrinking, novels are formatted to fit the screens of our handheld devices, and our daily witticisms are limited to 140 characters, it’s no surprise that the Flash Fiction story format has taken off. As Dorothy Parker once said, “Brevity is the soul of Flash fiction.” Just kidding, she said, “Brevity is the soul of lingerie.” But the point is, brevity is even more important for a story with a 500 – 1,000 word limit. Join us as we discuss the best methods for trimming down your prose, distilling your ideas, and writing a novel in just a few short paragraphs. Members of the group will write and revise flash fiction in this short workshop.
