Short but Mighty: Crafting Flash Nonfiction

All Levels | An ant can carry 5,000 times its body weight. Tiny things can be powerful. In this seminar, we’ll read flash nonfiction pieces that make a big impact in less than 750 words. We’ll discuss the tenets of this popular form and engage in writing and revising exercises to try our hand at creating short work. In flash nonfiction, every word counts. This seminar is for writers of all ability levels interested in discussing and creating short nonfiction.

Beginning Fall 2021, we will be adding select in-person classes back to our course catalog. The majority of our classes will still be offered via Zoom.

If a class says IN-PERSON in its title, it will take place in person at our permanent home in Seattle.

If a class says ASYNCHRONOUS in its title, it will take place on Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform.

If a class does not have a marker after its title, it will take place via Zoom.
