“Writers who do short shorts need to be especially bold. They stake everything on a stroke of inventiveness.”

– Irving Howe

Flash Fiction (online)

What "counts" as flash fiction?

Stories of around 1500 words—or fewer.

What's so great about super-short stories?

Sometimes, we can finish a first draft in a single sitting. Better still, we can practice story structure, voice, cause-and-effect storytelling—all the elements that go into making a piece moving.

At this hands-on workshop, we will:

  • Write an original short story and hear it read aloud, anonymously
  • Read & analyze 13 entertaining works of flash fiction
  • Explore how to write brief yet compelling stories
  • Discover form-specific revision techniques
  • Learn who publishes flash fiction

There’s no need to bring a story to this class; you’ll write your piece—and hear positive feedback—over the course of two days. We welcome beginners as well as non-native speakers of English.
