  • “We managed to go through so many different pieces, both published and from other participants. I can’t say emphatically enough how much I loved the pacing of the workshop! We went through so much material. It was fast, steady, but I didn’t feel overwhelmed or breathless. Thank you!”

  • “This was the first writing workshop I have ever attended. I now know what Flash Fiction is. Importantly, I learned about form and structure. I have much more to learn.

    The highlight of the class was watching the instructor bring writing alive. I would recommend this workshop to anyone who is writing or intending to write anything. I found it inspiring.”

  • “The writing workshop was easily one of the best I have ever attended. It is clear that the instructor knows her your stuff and has a love of writing, like the rest of us…this was really communicated throughout the day. The instructor was engaging and really informative. I was stressing a bit because I have a hard time writing on demand and usually fall back on old pieces, but the instructor managed to help me get something new on the page. I found that really exciting.”

  • “I learned the power of time restraints. At first I was irritated with the timeframe for writing the piece, but when I look back, I realize that a short timeframe advances my writing: I get more done in less time.

    Highlights: the pacing, the condensed workshop, no time wasted, a lot of theory and writing—the feeling that every minute counts.”

  • “What, exactly, did I learn at the “Writing Flash Fiction” workshop?

    Big question! I learnt so much: what flash fiction is, how to go about writing it, how to appreciate it (I have never been a lover of the short story!), how to give constructive criticism in the best, most positive way.

    The workshop exceeded my expectations. I enjoyed every minute of it, and it was really inspiring to be surrounded by so much talent. The instructor presented the content in such an accessible and fun, friendly way. I cannot thank her enough for organising such a great day. (more…)

  • “Thank you for yet another inspirational day. I won’t be a stranger.

    I learned that writing very short stories can be more than just a writing exercise, but the creation of true literary piece…I’m grateful this type of opportunity exists, with such a professional approach. And loving the healthy snacks ;)”

  • “I learned to avoid clichés like the plague 🙂 Also, try to trust your first instinct, but to refine it. Getting the feedback was pretty good, too; it gives you a good fillip.”
