Writing Short: The Art of Flash and Prose Poems

All Levels | Novels are glorious. So is writing that tells a tiny story, shares a small but shattering true experience, and/or reveals the beauty (or horror or boredom) of a single moment. Welcome to the world of flash, which can be hyperrealistic, hyper-fantastical, and anywhere in between. This workshop will engage you with on-the-spot in-class writing exercises, fun homework, and inspiring readings. You’ll have a bundle of tools and a bouquet of pieces you can revise or send out.
