All Levels | Every year, the Best Small Fictions publishes an anthology of the best flash fiction published in print and online in the past year. We’ll work through the entire 2018 anthology, reading works by some of the best flash fiction writers working today, including Lydia Davis and Kathy Fish. Every week, students will write a flash in response to one of the works in the anthology.
*Note: students must purchase a copy of The Best Small Fictions 2018 in advance of the class. Books can be purchased from the publisher at the following link: https://shop.braddockavenuebooks.com/shop/braddock/00042.html
Due to COVID-19, all classes will take place online-either through Zoom or through Wet Ink, our asynchronous learning platform-through the end of 2020.
All times are listed in Pacific Time.
