Do you want to learn to write flash fiction? Flash fiction--very short stories-- are just as fun to write as they are to read. Writing flash fiction is also a great way to break into publishing. In the four-week flash fiction intensive, you will read and write stories of 750 words or fewer.
March 1 - March 29, 2022
You will get a new video and written lesson every week, along with a new assignment.
You will write two flash fictions per week for four weeks, and submit one story per week to the class. This is a workshop course, so you will receive feedback on four different stories from the instructor and your peers. You will also read and comment on student submissions.
Optional Live Sessions: We will meet live once a week for one hour. All sessions will be recorded for playback if you cannot attend.
Every completed and revised story you submit for this course will be automatically considered for publication by Fiction Attic Press. Contributors to Fiction Attic Press are paid $20 per flash fiction.
If you've ever wanted to write short stories, but don't think you have the time, or if you've heard about flash fiction but don't really know what it is, this class is for you!
