Flash Fiction! Expose Yourself to Writing Fun Fiction


Flash fiction is a specialized writing art that tells a whole story in 1,000 words or fewer. In this course, we will examine a flash fiction technique each week, then read and critique student stories based on a prompt that will have been provided in the previous class. Note that we’re not looking for grammatical corrections—that’s what revisions are for. We’re looking for “this passage works well, this one confused me a bit, or that one doesn’t work for me.” How to revise will then be up to the author. 



There is no specific text, but the class website will offer recommended book titles on writing.
