Workshop Description: “Writing Flash Fiction”
Flash fiction is a style of fictional literature which focuses around extreme brevity. In this workshop, flash fiction writer, Nancy Stohlman will help participants generate original flash pieces, examine what makes successful flash fiction, and try to differentiate flash from its cousin, the prose poem. Flash forms have arrived as a backlash to genre boundaries and flash fiction is leading the pack, redefining how we tell stories. By embracing the compressed form, all writers – from poets to novelists – are cultivating a new set of skills and creating an entirely new kind of story. This workshop is open to writers with all levels of experience in the form.
