One-Page Fictions [Jayne Anne Phillips]
Jayne Anne Phillips’s ‘flash’ or short-short fictions were included in her landmark short story collection, Black Tickets, published in the late ’70s. In this workshop on compression, rhythm, language, and the “spiral construction” of successful short-shorts, students will receive copies of her essay, “Cheers, (or) How I Taught Myself To Write,” as well as other examples of the form. Students will need to send in work in advance of the class. Staff will provide more information following registration.
