All Levels | We will look at several classic examples of the short story and flash fiction, examining the basic and subtle elements of the genre. We will discuss the differences between the short story and longer forms, crafting a compelling story, building strong characters and plot elements within a confined space, and the editing process. Through writing prompts and exercises, students will learn the art of “less is more.” Later classes will focus on how to bring flash fiction to life. By the end of the course students will have a strong head start on writing their own short stories.
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through Winter quarter 2021.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
