Cut to the Quick: Flash Nonfiction [Erin Gilbert]

Through reading, discussion, and workshop, we will explore short prose-poems, concise lyrical essays, and micro-narratives. Writers at every level will put together and take apart the structure and language of nonfiction miniatures, poem/essay hybrids, and personal essays that can fit into the palm of a hand. Prompts will elicit sharp-toothed truths, winged lyricism, and mini-memoirs. Finally, we will consider how some of the best contemporary flash nonfiction writers have made use of history, honesty, and memory.
