Writing a work of micro-fiction can be done in a day.

Flash Fiction

The New Yorker magazine recently started a summer-long flash-fiction series. It's a milestone: the form has come of age. What’s so great about very short stories? Well, you can read a work of flash fiction over a single cup of coffee. And writing a work of micro-fiction can be done in a day. At this hands-on workshop, we will:

  • Write an original short story and hear it read aloud, anonymously
  • Explore how the pros write brief yet compelling stories
  • Read & analyze 3 entertaining works of flash fiction
  • 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—all in one day. You’ll be asked to bring a laptop (or borrow one from us). We welcome beginners as well as non-native speakers of English.
