Flash in a Flash

with Katey Schultz

Date: Saturday, April 27 & Saturday, May 4, 2024
Time: 1:00-3:00pm
Location: Virtual (Zoom)

Flash is one of the most popular genres being written and published today. Whether you’re already published, mired in NaNoWriMo drafts, deep into a memoir project, or fully devoted to fiction, the skills required in flash fiction and flash nonfiction will improve your ability to handle scene, embed metaphor, and target a character’s desires with precision. In this class you will learn the defining traits of flash form writing, study noteworthy examples, and begin new flashes from prompts delivered during class time. You will leave the presentations feeling more confident about scene, concision, and that elusive “so what?” factor that can turn anecdotal writing into impactful narrative.

This class will be most suitable for fiction and nonfiction writers. Writers of all skill levels are welcome. 

Pricing and Registration: This course is open to both members and non-members. Non-member registration will open on April 10, 2024.
