Flash Fiction Fundamentals

Introductory/Intermediate | How do you craft a great story in less than 1,000 words? To answer that question, we will read and discuss contemporary classics of the genre to understand how they work and what is possible with the flash fiction form. Students will apply what they’ve learned by writing at least one flash piece.

5 seats in this class are reserved for scholarship students. For more info on scholarships, click here.
