Flash fiction stories are very short stories, ranging between one sentence and three pages long. Using published examples, there will be a discussion of the characteristics of flash fiction, including an emphasis on language and imagery as well as a strong use of subtext. Writing exercises will focus on the five primary types of flash fiction: the monologue, the individual scene, the snapshot story, the tale, and the experiment. This workshop is open to writers high school aged and older. All genres and levels of experience are welcome.
