FLASH! Writing Short Forms

Recharge your summer writing in this generative workshop. If you've been curious about the differences between the prose poem, brief essay, and flash fiction, or just looking for a place to start, this class is for you. We'll take a comparative look before working with a flash prompt in each genre. Sort of like speed-dating, and everyone goes home with three flash starts. See which clicks for you. You're welcome to jump in if you're new to writing, but we'll be moving fast!
