Flash, Bang and Done! One Story in One Thousand Words (or less)

Over 4,000 outlets are publishing flash fiction, many post one every day. That means a lot of sites, magazines, and podcasts are hungry for your fiction.
What is flash fiction? It’s compressed stories told in a variety of styles, usually less than 2,000 words. Some stories are lists, email exchanges, and classifieds, but many use the traditional narrative form.
Every writer can benefit from learning about the genre, even if they never choose to write it. You’ll learn how to write tightly, quickly defining your characters, identifying your conflict and plot and selecting only the most salient details.
Each week we’ll work on one aspect of these elements. We’ll also discuss stories we’ve read and learn exercises to improve our writing. I’ll connect the dots between this genre and the novel and the memoir.  The four-week course will culminate in a draft of your flash fiction piece.
You’ll need writing instruments. Developed story ideas are welcome but not required. $5 photocopying fee.
