Flash Fiction Workshop

hands writing

A weekend intensive designed for beginning and practiced writers alike to dive into the world of flash fiction. Known for its extreme brevity, flash fiction (or non-fiction) can capture those little nuggets of life in under 1000 words while staying true to classic story elements. A perfect workshop for bloggers, writers on the go, and those wanting to expand their repertoire of literary skills, with the goal of polishing at least one flash fiction piece to completion.
