Event Summary
Flash Fiction—When Less is More
In this workshop, we’ll explore the exciting genre of Flash Fiction.  We’ll define what makes a piece of writing flash and how this is similar, yet different, from other forms of fiction.  We’ll look at how you can pack a satisfying story in less than 1,000 words, paying close attention to language and plot and character.  We’ll read some contemporary Flash Fiction and get started writing our own flash stories with the help of prompts and exercises.  You’ll leave the workshop with a variety of resources for you to continue your study of Flash Fiction, including a list of journals and magazines that publish flash.
Steve Cushman, award-winning author and poet, will lead a workshop on writing fiction. The event is free, but participants are required to register. The workshop will take place in Studio 206 at the Sawtooth School for Visual Art.
