We are so lucky and excited to welcome powerhouse professor and author Mary Berman to teach with us this Fall. Her craft class, Flash Fiction Forms, is for anyone who is looking to understand Flash Fiction as a genre better and anyone who enjoys writing Flash Fiction and wants to expand the kind of Flash they write.
Read the description below:
Flash fiction stories – generally considered to be short stories under 1,500 words, or even under 1,000 – provide the writer with a great opportunity to practice conventional narrative frameworks AND test-drive new techniques. (There are also plenty of markets for them, as many magazines pay by word count!) In this workshop, we’ll consider examples of a number of different forms: short stories as Google searches, academic texts, recipes, and more. We’ll spend some time executing our own short story ideas within at least one of these forms, and we’ll also spend a few minutes talking about specific markets that seek flash fiction. There will be room for Q&A at the end.
